BALTIMORE BOAT CRASH CLAIMS 2 LIVES, 6 MORE INJURED

Two women were killed and six people injured when a passenger boat slammed into a concrete abutment at a major bridge in Baltimore early on Sunday. Maryland Police said two bodies were pulled from the water near the Francis Scott Key Bridge spanning the Patapsco River. Six other passengers were taken to hospital with injuries, the severity of which were not immediately known. The power boat hit a concrete piling along a shipping channel that protects the bridge from boat strikes. The protective structure is about 50 yards from the bridge.
