Crane Collapse on Route 9A

Crane3Scarsdale resident and photographer Lisa VanGundy was nearby with her camera on Friday March 17 when she heard about the collapse of a large red crane on Saw Mill River Road around 12:30 pm.

She drove by and was able to get these close-up photos of the big red crane that had fallen at a construction site where a 200,000 square foot warehouse and offices are being built for Amazon at 211 Saw Mill River Road in Mt. Pleasant. Work has been going on for about a year and the new building was supposed to open this fall.

According to Town Supervisor, Carl Fulgenzi, two workers were injured and taken to Westchester Medical Center. The cause of the crane failure is being investigated.
