Dashcam of Crane Collapse

TORONTO -- Police and fire crews are investigating after a crane collapsed in Toronto’s Regent Park neighbourhood Thursday morning.

The intersection of River and Dundas streets is currently closed after a stationary crane fell in a construction site just after 10:30 a.m., police said.

Toronto Fire Platoon Chief Dan Sell told CP24 that nobody was injured inside the construction site but he added that there could have been two potential injuries to pedestrians outside.

“A girl that was here, a female, she narrowly avoided being killed,” Sell said. “She was close to her bike, the crane fell onto the street, it damaged her bike but thankfully she was okay.”

Sell said another male bystander was in the area at the time of the collapse but sustained no injuries.

“We had a male that was further north on River Street. They found that he is suffering [from] shock obviously because it almost hit him.”

Paramedics said they have assessed both people at the scene and no serious injuries have been reported.
