Crane collapse injures operator near Garden State Parkway
BRICK, N.J. (AP) — A construction worker was injured when a crane tipped over near the Garden State Parkway in southern New Jersey.
Brick police tell the Asbury Park Press that the accident occurred around 10 a.m. Saturday in Brick.
They say the crane's operator was working on an overpass that carries the Parkway over Route 88 when the crane apparently collapsed, throwing the man into a wooded area. He was flown to a hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries, but further details on his condition were not disclosed.
The man's name has not been released.
The cause of the accident is under investigation by state police and the Brick police department.
