Why did the Baltimore Bridge collapse so quickly?

After this accident, many questions related to this collision have arisen like why the plane hit the bridge? Why did the bridge collapse so quickly after the collision? Why was the bridge not made safe for such accidents?

Experts explain that it is too early to tell what happened when the 948-foot-long Singaporean-flagged cargo ship ‘Dali’ hit the bridge, resulting in the bridge, which has been in place since 1977, collapsing. It piled up in a moment.

He said that during the construction of such a bridge, care is taken to take safety measures in case of such accidents, and safeguards are also ensured during construction.
