(AP) Rockland County Executive Ed Day says a helicopter and marine unit are at the scene of a crane collapse at the Tappan Zee Bridge in the New York suburbs.
Video from a news helicopter showed at least one person being removed from a car and loaded into an ambulance.
Online images show a piece of a crane sprawled across lanes in both directions on the bridge, which spans Rockland and Westchester counties.
The incident began unfolding around noon Tuesday.
In March, a 90-foot tugboat sank after it hit a construction barge near the bridge site, killing three crew members.
