The roof on top of one Orlando house sustained significant damage after a truck carrying a crane tipped over, crashing through the roof. A second house was damaged as well. The Orlando Florida Department shared a picture of the crane accident on its Facebook page. Unfortunately, two people suffered injuries, including the crane operator. The other injury was suffered by a man who was inside the home of the damaged roof and had to be rushed to a nearby hospital.
The incident took place around 3:30 in the afternoon. The crane was there for a power pole installation by Florida Power & Light. Power had been knocked out in the area. There was no immediate information regarding the cause of the accident. The crane company has not promised the two families affected by the accident temporary housing while their properties are repaired.
