A crane collapsed on an apartment building and parking garage in Dallas on Sunday, killing one person and injuring six, authorities said. A spokesman with Dallas Fire-Rescue Department said five of the wounded were in serious and critical condition. A sixth person was hospitalized and released, he said.
The crane tore through four floors of the apartment building in Dallas’ downtown city center district, though it wasn’t immediately clear how many floors in the garage collapsed.
Severe storms were moving through the area at the time, but officials could not yet confirm that the heavy winds were responsible for the collapse.
