Baltimore bridge probe focused on electrical failure, NTSB chair says

National Transportation Safety Board investigators are focusing on electrical issues on the Dali container ship before it crashed into and destroyed Baltimore's Francis Scott Key Bridge last month, board chair Jennifer Homendy said Wednesday on Capitol Hill.

Homendy said she and other investigators believe there is a connection between the lights going out on the ship, as seen in videos recorded just before the crash, and the vessel heading off course and into the bridge.

"That is where our focus is right now in this investigation," Homendy said, fielding questions about the tragedy from the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee during a hearing on her renomination.
