Mobile Crane Collapses In Hell's Kitchen, No Injuries Reported

A mobile crane collapsed this morning in a vacant lot in Hell's Kitchen but no injuries were reported.

Fire officials say the crane, which was mounted on the back of a truck, fell around 8:45 a.m. at 438 West 38th Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues, near the exit from the Lincoln Tunnel.

The mobile crane tipped over as it tried to lift an air conditioning unit off of another truck to the top of a nearby building.

The crane fell over, into the street.

Passersby said they hear a large bang as the crane fell.

Another crane is being sent to West 38th Street to lift the fallen crane off of the truck. Traffic is closed off from the area.
