What was described as a “mass casualty event” unfolded early Tuesday morning after a ship collision caused the spectacular collapse of a major bridge in Baltimore.

According to WBAL-TV, the Francis Scott Key Bridge over the Patapsco River collapsed about 1:30 a.m., sending at least seven vehicles plummeting into the water.

“This is an unthinkable tragedy,” Mayor Brandon Scott told reporters at a 6 a.m. news conference, according to the New York Post, as video of the collapse shocked viewers around social media.

“Never would you think that you could see, physically see, the Key Bridge tumble down like that. It looked like something out of an action movie,” Scott said.
