VIDEO: Crash in the Bronx leaves truck dangling off expressway

News

NEW YORK (KRON) — A crash on an expressway in the Bronx left a tractor-trailer in a precarious position.

It is the kind of crash that has everyone doing a double take when they see the video. Several vehicles were involved.

The cab of one truck was dangling off the New York overpass.

In fact, it was hanging so low the driver was actually able to climb down onto the road below and walk to the side. He presumably needed a few moments to catch his breath.

But the driver is said to be doing well on Monday night. The driver needed seven metal staples in his head but had no life-threatening injuries.

He said this happened after a car cut him off and hit the front of his cab.

The crash created a traffic nightmare, with all lanes closed for hours.

Authorities said if the man had been carrying a heavier load, it might have flipped over completely.
