Strong winds cause crane to collapse on Downtown Dallas apartment building

Jason Evans, public information officer for Dallas Fire and Rescue, said the ongoing investigation was extremely fluid.

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.

The crane broke into several pieces that fell into different portions of the apartment building, located across the street from a large construction site, Evans said.

Emergency crews helped evacuate residents and dug through rubble to search for people and pets who may have been trapped inside the apartments or collapsed parking garage.
