The FBI has launched a criminal investigation into the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapse that took the lives of six men.

The criminal probe by the FBI focuses on whether federal laws were violated by the 22-member crew on board the Dali and the ship’s owners.

According to NBC, the FBI is investigating whether the crew members knew the ship had potential mechanical problems.

On Monday morning, Federal agents boarded the Dali with search warrants.

A spokesperson for the FBI told the press, “The FBI is present aboard the cargo ship Dali conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity.”

Per The Daily Mail:

The FBI has launched a criminal probe into the Baltimore bridge collapse that killed six construction workers.

Agents will investigate whether the 22-strong crew of the Dali knew it had serious systemic issues before they left the Maryland port on March 26.

Meanwhile Baltimore’s mayor said the city is brining in outside firms to ‘hold responsible all entities accountable for the Key Bridge tragedy’.

It comes just three weeks after shocking footage beamed around the world showing the 110,000-ton cargo ship ram into the Francis Scott Key Bridge.

The FBI’s investigation is separate from the ongoing investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

Previously, The Gateway Pundit reported that the Dali ship’s owner filed a lawsuit in the U.S. Federal Court, claiming no responsibility for the Key bridge’s collapse.
