    In all fairness, it wouldn't surprise me if there was something messed up with our navigational system and markers/lighting as our infrastructure erodes.

    I'll let @AntiFederalist weigh in on this.

    Holy $#@!...that's a bad one.

    Pray for the folks that were lost.

    At first glance, it appears to be an accident. Bridge strikes by large ships or barges are, while not very common, are certainly not unheard of.

    Based on the video it looks like a total "dark ship" incident and then the e-gen kicked in, but that will not provide propulsion or steering.

    From the amount of stack smoke, it looks like they got the main engine online just before collision and tried "backing down" as hard as they could, but it was too late.

    There would have been a US pilot onboard at that time, so it will be interesting to review his account and electronic nav data.

    Looks deliberate, turns right into the bridge support. Any mechanical/electrical failure excuses could easily cover up a deliberate act.
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.

    It appears that the ship lost power and control afterwards.

    There were some Urkanians on twitter celebrating the destruction of the bridge.

    ... according to the Baltimore Banner's Justin Fenton, Maryland Gov. Wes Moore has confirmed that the whole incident could have been much worse — and thanks to timely actions from the ship's crew, many lives may have been saved.

    Per the governor, the ship's collision was due to a power loss that disabled their ability to navigate — but those on board issued a mayday call to emergency officials onshore, and they were able to restrict the traffic going over the bridge. As it was, some cars were reportedly on the bridge when it went down, but many more might have been otherwise.

    So according to this guy, the actions taken to slow the ship (dropping anchor, reversing engines) would have turned the ship towards the bridge support.

    I wonder if they have let it drift on original course if it would have cleared the bridge near the middle?

    Rumors, that is all that they are at this point.

    This $#@! happens, not every day, but often enough to know that it does not need a massive conspiracy to cover for it.

    just off top of head? it could have been hacked, or an inside job. i'm not prepared to spend a lot of time on this, but..

    1) ship navigating off-center of waterway under a lower part of the bridge - why?
    2) ship power cut - why?
    3) ship power returned, but then smoke seen - why?
    4) ship was already headed too close or on target to the column
    5) no current or water influence made it happen
    6) ship lost power JUST AS it was atempting to avoid the column
    7) ship power restored JUST AS it was situated fore to the column (keep acceleration)

    it was manipulated either externally, internally or both. imo.

    That was crazy, the way it collapsed like it was made out of toothpicks.

    Doesn't look like there would have been any time to get off the bridge after the impact, before the collapse.

    I've always harbored suspicions about the reality of the east coast (the west coast, too, for that matter).
