Crane Crashes Down Near HighwayConstruction work at the Mill Casino-Hotel got a little more exciting that workers would have liked on Tuesday.

No one was injured when a crane came crashing down alongside Highway 101 in North Bend.

According to a Mill Spokesperson, the operator was able to somehow get out in the process of the heavy equipment going down.

The General Contractor arrived on scene shortly after and began trying to determine what caused the accident, but no word yet on what that might have been.

The crane had just successfully removed one section of an old fire wall, that dated back to the days when a plywood mill operated on that site, but when they attempted to remove the second section it capsized.

Officials said it has not hindered work on the hotel expansion or the work going on inside the Casino.
