Crane crashes into half of Louisville house; No injuries reported

MetroSafe said there are no reported injuries.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A crane fell on top of a home in the Chickasaw neighborhood Wednesday, MetroSafe confirmed.

Crews responded to the 1100 block of Plato Terrace after MetroSafe said a tree boom fell on a home. There were no reported injuries.

The incident happened when a crew was removing a tree with a 105-foot crane.

'The crane tipped over and collapsed and the arm of the crane along with the tree itself fell through the roof of the neighboring structure. The tree is the backyard of the neighboring structure now," said Capt. Bobby Cooper with Louisville Fire.

The American Red Cross is helping those displaced by the damage. 

A WHAS11 photojournalist at the scene captured a picture of the crane stretching above one house, crashing into the roof of a nearby home. The tree boom appears to be in a neighbor's driveway.
