Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies said representatives from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration also arrived at the scene to conduct an investigation into the accident. Officials said the investigation, which may center on the crane and how much weight it may have been lifting, could take up to a week.
This crane collapse was not the first one here in Florida. Last month, a crane toppled over at the new Orlando Magic arena. No one was hurt in that crash. Also, last year in south Florida, a crane collapsed in Pompano Beach in Broward County. Crews were working on a baseball facility at the time. No one was injured.
