Crane collapses in Fayetteville

Last week, a crane collapsed at a construction site for a parking deck in downtown Fayetteville.

When the crane collapsed, it struck several vehicles and tore down a section of metal scaffolding.  The crane’s boom crushed one vehicle completely and clipped another nearby vehicle.  The boom landed lying across Franklin Street.

Fayetteville authorities said that the parking deck suffered little damage in the crane collapse.  In addition, officials reported that the crane collapse did cause a diesel leak.  Fortunately, the Fayetteville Fire Department’s hazmat team was able to stop it quickly.

The crane’s operator was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center with unspecified injuries.
