Eerie timing: It was just the anniversary of the Francis Scott Key bridge opening for traffic in 1977

The timing of this Maryland Transportation Authority post was 3 days before the Francis Scott Key Bridge was hit by a boat and collapsed..

Three days ago it was mentioned that it was the anniversary of the bridge being opened for traffic in 1977..

The historical reminder post also mentions that the bridge stood in just about the exact same place where Francis Scott Key repeatedly saw the military bombardment that inspired  him to write the Star Spangled Banner..

Videos of the event are exceptionally sad and scary. Those who lost their lives never saw it coming. Those who narrowly missed death undoubtedly  have a renewed fear or a new fear that they did not previously have.

It is like Final Destination.. in real life.

May those who died rest in peace ..
