Investigators say the 70-foot wide section of concrete fell from an overpass above the Grand Central Parkway just after nine o-clock last night. The concrete fell on the front of one man's van breaking his right leg; that was the only injury reported. Traffic was shut down in both directions as city engineers were brought in to check the rest of the overpass. Authorities believe Friday's soggy weather in the city could have caused the concrete to fall. New York City saw heavy rain all day and some reports of flooding.
