Cleburne, Texas

A man was injured Friday when the 60-foot crane he was operating fell on his cab at a Cleburne tire center.

A Cleburne police spokeswoman says co-workers at T&W Tire Center on the southern edge of Cleburne managed to remove the man. He was airlifted to a Fort Worth hospital in undetermined condition, but the spokeswoman said his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

Aerial video showed the crane also fell across a flatbed trailer at the tire center 30 miles south of Fort Worth and 50 miles southwest of Dallas.

There’s no word yet on what caused the collapse nor the identity of the injured man.
