The sudden collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, resulting from a cargo ship collision, highlighted safety and communication failures, particularly a lack of warning for construction workers on the bridge.

In the incident leading to the deaths of six construction workers, there were concerns about the absence of a safety boat, required by federal regulations, that could have potentially warned the workers of the impending collision. The construction company, Brawner Builders, is under scrutiny for possibly not taking adequate precautions, amidst inquiries into the enforcement of safety skiffs in such situations.
