Crane Accident Stops Traffic For Hours

A lunchtime crane accident in central Lubbock snarled traffic for several hours Tuesday afternoon. 

Around Noon Tuesday, a crane tipped over at the Marsha Sharp Freeway and Avenue Q intersection. We're told the crane operator jumped clear before the collapse, and there were no injuries on the ground.

Traffic along the westbound access road was blocked for several hours as heavy rescue crews cleared the wreckage.
