1 dead after crane topples on Dallas apartments

A construction crane in Dallas came crashing down Sunday on an apartment building, killing at least one person and injuring five others, local fire officials said.

Officials confirmed that two people were also in a critical condition and that three others were in a serious condition.

"The building itself has suffered multiple collapses in different areas of the building to include residential spaces and the parking garage", Evans said.

According to media reports, the gusts have also damaged a hangar door and part of the roof at a Southwest Airlines maintenance facility at Dallas Love Field airport.

Dallas Fire and Rescue reported the incident was near 2600 Live Oak St., where the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs' Latino Cultural Center is located.

"We're hoping that what we have at this point is where it ends [in terms of casualties]", said Mr Evans.

The crane crashed into the Elan City Lights apartment complex just before 2 p.m., cutting through the units "like a knife through butter", witness Abbey Kearney told the Dallas Morning News.

Two people have reportedly been rescued and hospitalized.

"It felt like a year", Mrs Bosquez said. Damage to vehicles could be seen. He said did not know whether the crane was in operation at the time.

"Right now, every single level of the parking garage, in part, has collapsed".

Kiersten Symone Smith, 29, was pronounced dead at a hospital following the crane collapse.

While clear skies are expected in the wake of the system in North Texas, Norman said the same storm complex continues south and will likely impact Austin, Waco and San Antonio through the early evening. Residents are urged to call 311 to report downed trees or flooded areas.
