Crane accident halts work at WTC site

Construction was stopped Thursday at the World Trade Center site after a crane dropped steel beans from 40 stories above onto the truck that delivered them. The accident, which occurred around 10 a.m., did not result in any injuries but the site has been shut down pending an investigation.

The steel was being hoisted on the south side of 4 World Trade Center when the a cable snapped sending the beams falling, a New York Fire Department spokesperson told Crain’s New York. The accident is the latest in a series of issues at the site that have slowed progress there, pushing back the dates of opening of the museum among other projects.
