LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. (AP) - A crane fell onto its side and hit a building under construction Thursday afternoon in Lake Oswego, Oregon, authorities said.

The Lake Oswego Fire Department said the crane tipped over at the Mercantile construction project.

KOIN reports that about six people were working in the immediate area when the crane tipped but no one was hurt.

Firefighters think the crane tipped over due to too much weight on its front end while trying to work on the upper deck of a building.
