Tampa, Florida 

Part of eastbound Busch Boulevard is closed because a crane tipped over near train tracks, said Capt. Bill Wade of Tampa Fire Rescue.

The road is closed between Twin Lakes Boulevard and Orange Grove Road.

The crane lifted too heavy a load and toppled about 1 p.m., Wade said.

No one was injured, but some fuel spilled from the fuel tank. An absorbent was used to clean up the spill.

Large tow trucks are working to lift the crane and clear the road.
