Crane Collapses onto Tappan Zee Bridge. “A Miracle” There Were No Serious Injuries.

The New York Times reports, “A crane collapsed on the Tappan Zee Bridge in the midst of work on the bridge’s replacement on [July 19], injuring [at least four] people and shutting down traffic in both directions. . . .” The report adds, “‘This was nothing short of a miracle,’ Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said . . . citing the lack of serious injuries from the accident.”

Associated Press reports this morning that, “Most of the lanes of the Tappan Zee Bridge north of New York City have reopened after a crane collapsed across the entire width of the bridge, but transportation officials are still advising motorists to plan for extra delays during the Wednesday morning commute.”
