American Crushing & Recycling auction

Fred Conley, of Seneca Falls, New York, checks out the cab of one of eight tri-axle dump trucks owned by American Crushing & Recycling that were at a Ritche Brothers auction of construction equipment in which the company's assets were liquidated to pay victims of the Avon Mountain crash last July. Conley, the owner of Conley and Son Excavation, attented the auction with his son Frederick Conley III, at right, and said he was aware of the circumstances of the sale.
