Missle falls off truck in New York

A missile fell off a truck and onto a New York highway on Friday,
but the weapon did not have a warhead and posed no danger, police said.

WCBS radio reported it was a Tomahawk cruise missile. Police and fire department officials could not confirm that.

The cargo came loose when the truck carrying it collided with another truck on a motorway in the Bronx.

“It was a military-type missile but it was inert. There was no danger and no one was harmed,” a police spokesman said.
