Construction accident at World Trade Center siteCrane drops metal beams at World Trade Center site, damaging construction vehicle
NEW YORK (AP) ' The New York Fire Department says a crane dropped metal beams at the World Trade Center site, damaging a construction vehicle.
No one was in the truck when it was hit on Thursday.
The FDNY says one person was checked out by medical workers at the scene, but there were no serious injuries.
Preliminary reports indicate that the crane was removing the beams from the truck when a cable snapped. It's not clear how high the load had been lifted before it dropped.
Construction worker Frank Pensabene (PEHN'-zuh-been) heard a loud crash. He says: "Everybody was yelling and running."
There were some subway disruptions for about an hour.
The accident occurred inside the construction zone at Four World Trade Center in lower Manhattan.
