Tipped-Over Crane Causes 90 Backup

BATAVIA, NY - If you were driving east along the Thruway near Batavia on Saturday afternoon, you may have wondered why things were so backed up.

Here's why: a crane that tipped over on its side, right in the middle of the 90, caused a jam that affected a whole lot of drivers.

It also led to at least one rear-end collision. Mercy Flight had to take a driver to ECMC with a badly broken leg.

As for the crane, getting it upright was no easy task.
