Around 10am, support cables apparently snapped on a crane at 4 World Trade Center, causing the load that the crane was lifting to fall 40 stories and crush a tractor trailer.
Emergency crews are on the scene and the World Trade Center site and surrounding area have been evacuated.

WPIX reports that there were no injuries and the crane operator needed no medical attention.
All is clear at the World Trade Center site and subway service has resumed. The NYPost has a photo showing the steel crushing the tractor trailer and reports that the one minor injury was a construction worker slipping as he ran from the falling steel.
