At least 22 people were injured Wednesday when two cranes collided and partially collapsed at a construction site in Austin, Texas.
The two structures were shown entangled several stories above a building near the city’s bustling downtown area, according to footage posted by the local station KVUE.
At least 16 people were rushed to a hospital with injuries, the Austin-Travis County EMS reported. Crane operators were still inside the structure’s cabin, which didn’t appear to be damaged Wednesday morning.
Authorities described the accident as a “crane collision” and a “structural collapse” but didn’t immediately provide more details. No deaths had been reported Wednesday.
