“My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with the persons and families affected by the Baltimore Bridge collapse.”🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾,” the Ravens signal-caller wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter).

The ship, named DALI, that collided with the bridge is claimed to be owned by Singapore-based Grace Ocean Pte and chartered by maritime major Maersk to convey cargo to Sri Lanka. When the bridge collapsed, automobiles and a crew of construction workers plunged into the Patapsco River.

CNN reports that all of the ship’s crew members are safe.
