At least one person was killed and several people injured after a crane collapsed onto a Dallas, Texas apartment building Sunday afternoon, CBSDFW reported.
Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans previously told The Dallas Morning News that an unknown number of people were being treated for injuries after several floors of the Elan City Lights building were crushed by the crane.
One resident told the Morning News the crash initially sounded like thunder but had devastated parts of the building.
“I saw that the crane had actually fell straight through the building and had destroyed a good eight to 10 apartments and so there’s like floors and stuff falling through,” building resident Isaiah Allen told the outlet.
CBSDFW reported that the entire region was experiencing fallen power lines and trees caused by heavy winds. The outlet also tweeted photos of the fallen crane over buildings in the city.
