Is it crashing or are you just seeing the redraw issue on Yosemite that's displayed in your photo?

If that latter, go to Preferences>Performance... and uncheck "Use Graphics Processor" and restart Photoshop. Does the problem go away?

Disabling GPU drawing is just a workaround until the video driver bugs are fixed by Apple. Disabling the GPU also means that some of the Photoshop features that use the GPU will be unavailable. When Apple fixes the bugs in the video card driver, you will need to remember to re-enable GPU drawing in Photoshop.
