NTSB Interviews Workers from Cargo Ship that Collapsed Baltimore Bridge

The board chair says investigators continue to collect evidence.

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) have interviewed members of the cargo ship that crashed into the Baltimore bridge on March 26. Board chair Jennifer Homendy said during a Senate hearing that officials are continuing to collect evidence from the bridge’s collapse.

Members of the Senate Commerce Committee asked Chair Homendy about the ongoing bridge investigation process as the panel held the first hearing for renomination to her position. She told the committee that they could expect the NTSB’s preliminary report in the first week of May.

During the hearing, the committee’s ranking member, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, said that President Biden’s administration should financially aid the bridge’s reconstruction process.

“I think the federal government needs to help to rebuild the bridge,” Senator Cruz said. “With court cases likely taking years to resolve, it’s also sensible for federal taxpayers to front the money now with legal protections so taxpayers are paid back by the legally responsible parties.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Chair Homendy to be led by God as she oversees the NTSB.
  • For agency investigators as they gather evidence from the cargo ship’s collision with the Key Bridge.
  • For wisdom for members of the Senate Commerce Committee as they hold the confirmation hearings.
