Crane tips onto Dallas Museum of Art, just missing sculpture
DALLAS - A truck-mounted crane has toppled onto the roof of the Dallas Museum of Art, injuring the operator and narrowly missing a sculpture outside the building.
Museum spokeswoman Jill Bernstein says the crane was being used to assemble a tent for a special event when it fell Friday morning.
Bernstein says the crane operator was taken to a hospital. The operator's name and condition weren't immediately available.
The crane just missed a towering red steel sculpture called Ave by Mark di Suvero, which stands on the museum's front lawn. Bernstein says no works of art were damaged but that the south end of the museum has been closed.
Officials are investigating why the truck tipped over.
