    Two Brooklyn construction workers were seriously injured Monday when a truck with a crane attached overturned, pinning them underneath, authorities said.

    A fire department spokesman said it took about 45 minutes to free the men; they were doing construction work on the Belt Parkway in Canarsie when the truck tipped shortly after 11 a.m. 

    The workers were taken to a hospital with serious injuries, but both are expected to survive.
