On Tuesday, a construction crane collapsed on the Tappan Zee Bridge that injured four people, trapped motorist for hours and shut down traffic. Shortly after noon, the mid-Hudson mess began when the crane that was there to help build a replacement bridge that was long awaited slammed cater-cornered the seven lanes of crossing and shut down the busy bridge for hours damaging it from both the directions. After being briefed on the accident, Gov. Cuomo said that, “We don’t know exactly what caused the malfunction, sometimes equipment breaks and sometimes accidents happen. As simplistic as that sounds sometimes that’s all there is to it.” As per Cuomo, on the deck of the bridge, the crane was sitting and carrying a vibratory hammer at the time when it collapsed.

He said that the crane and hammer were undergoing a routine construction process procedure and were driving the pilings into the earth when the accident took place. As per Cuomo, the cause of the accident will be investigated by the officials. As per one official, some problem with the crane, or worker error or problem with the hammer that the crane was carrying might be the possible reason behind the collapse of the crane. As per the statement given by Cuomo to the reporters, “When the crane collapsed it went across both sides of what we call the old Tappan Zee Bridge, two cars had minor accidents in avoiding the falling crane, but miraculously there were no serious injuries whatsoever. No vehicle actually hit the crane. The traffic wasn’t that heavy. We were very, very fortunate that the situation wasn’t worse.”
