AUSTIN, Texas — Austin-Travis County EMS (ATCEMS) on Wednesday morning responded to reports of several people being injured after two cranes collided near a Mueller neighborhood development.
The incident happened at 1600 Robert Browning, a block away from Dell Children’s Medical Center.
The structural crash caused a panic on the ground and dozens of minor injuries from workers scattering in the area.
ATCEMS says 22 people are hurt; several patients were transported to a hospital. Authorities say 16 of the injured workers were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
The cause is under investigation. One of the crane operators remained in its cabin more than an hour after the accident, but authorities say he's safe and helping to stabilize the crane.
