A large cargo ship leaving Baltimore Harbor collided with a the Francis Scott Key Bridge overnight, causing the entire structure to collapse. Authorities say at least seven people are missing.

The Key Bridge carries Interstate 695 across Baltimore’s outer harbor. The Singapore-registered ship was setting sail for Sri Lanka when it struck a support column of the bridge at around 1:30 a.m. The bridge then broke apart in several places. The stunning collapse was captured on video.

Authorities say there were several vehicles on the bridge at the time of the collapse and a rescue operation is underway for survivors. Two people were reportedly rescued. The ship did not sink and there are no reports of injuries on the ship.  (NBC News)
