(Roy, NY) -- A man was injured after falling into a cement plant hopper in Troy on Wednesday.
According to Troy Police, the man was trying to climb the structure at the American Rock Salt Plant at 39 Front Street when he fell in.
Firefighters had to use a basket to pull the man out of the hopper.
He was taken to Albany Med with non-life threatening injuries. No charges have been filed.
A highway overpass in Missouri collapsed when rail cars slammed into one of the bridge's pillars after a cargo train collision. Seven people were injured, though none seriously.
The bridge collapsed after a Union Pacific train hit the side of a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train at a rail intersection. Derailed rail cars then hit columns supporting the highway, causing it to buckle and partially collapse. More
