From Eyewitness News:
Service on the 7 subway line has currently been restored with delays after a crane-hoisting accident in Flushing, Queens.
The crane was lifting construction material to the rooftop of stores at about 1 p.m. when the hoist broke and the load was spilled onto the 7 tracks at Roosevelt Avenue and College Point Boulevard.
The debris apparently caused a small fire and smoke condition on the track.
Service was originally suspended in both directions, but resumed with residual delays just before 4:30 p.m.
