The bodies of two individuals were retrieved from a red pickup truck submerged beneath the Baltimore bridge collapse.

During the incident, a ship collision caused eight construction workers to fall into the water. While two workers were rescued immediately, the search for the remaining four, presumed deceased, is ongoing. Salvage teams are addressing hazardous materials, and accident investigators are present at the site. Four of the six victims have been identified, including Alejandro Hernandez Fuentes and Dorlian Ronial Castillo Cabrera, recovered from the truck. Divers are now relying on sonar scans due to unsafe river conditions. Two other missing workers, Miguel Luna and Maynor Suazo Sandoval, have been named. The search, challenging due to debris, is supported by various resources. The vessel involved contains significant fuel and cargo, posing environmental concerns. Removal of bridge parts is planned, and investigations into the ship's malfunction are underway. The incident may impact global supply chains and the economy, with thousands of jobs potentially affected.

Governor Wes Moore emphasizes efforts to provide closure to the victims' families and address the crisis's broader implications.
