The driver of this tractor-trailer was eastbound on Harrison Ave. in Harrison, shortly after noon last Wednesday but as he stopped for the light at Seventh St., his truck’s load shifted, causing the left rear chain to snap and the load to fall from a flatbed onto the curb, damaging both, police said. The load was believed to be a piece of machinery weighing 50,000 pounds, police said. No summonses were issued.
