Streetfilms Shorties: West Side Highway Crash Aftermath

9:23 AM EST on November 18, 2009

A crash shut down the southbound West Side Highway for about two hours during the morning rush yesterday. The Times reported that a northbound driver catapulted into the southbound lanes, colliding with a
southbound vehicle near 125th Street shortly before 7:00 a.m. Three people were
injured and taken to St. Luke's Hospital.

I was riding by on the West Side bike path two hours later and shot this footage.
