March 26th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

The following is a statement from Comptroller Brooke E. Lierman on the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore:

“It is truly horrific to see reports of the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse early this morning. I am praying for and thinking of all those people who were traveling on the bridge, as well as the crew of the cargo ship involved and their families.

 “I am so grateful for the efforts of first responders from around the state assisting with the ongoing search for victims and survivors.

 “I ask Marylanders to be alert as they make their way around the area today. My agency and I will work in partnership with the Moore-Miller Administration, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott, and Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski during this state of emergency to support Marylanders and others impacted in any way we can.”
