A shocking video showing the moment a tractor-trailer hauling scrap metal flips onto its side on a heavily trafficked York City highway has emerged online.
The incident occurred on New York’s Tappan Zee Bridge during Friday morning’s rush hour, just ahead of a vehicle that captured the horrifying crash on video. The footage shows the big rig, traveling at highway speed, as its trailer flips onto its left side, pulling the tractor over with it. The trailer’s wheels and axle roll toward the wreck scene after the rig comes to rest.
Luckily, no one was hurt in the wreck that scattered metal cargo and parts from the tractor-trailer over the northbound lanes of the bridge.
According to authorities, the crash was caused by a failure in the truck suspension system, sending the trailer out of control. At least five other vehicles were hit by debris, they said.
