A dump truck crash Friday morning stalled traffic and closed the right lane of 490 east between Culver and Winton Roads.

State Police say the truck’s operator, 40-year-old Jerrell Heath of Rochester, was in the far right, eastbound lane when the bed of the truck began to rise and struck the pedestrian bridge.

New York State DOT engineers will be inspecting the bridge to make sure it’s safe.

The right lane reopened at 4 p.m.

Charges are pending.
