At least 22 people have been injured on a Texas construction site after two cranes collided, officials said.
The collision in Austin, Texas, occurred on Wednesday morning, according to Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services.
There are currently 22 people being considered as patients from the collision: 16 people who were transported to hospitals for non-life threatening injuries, three people who refused treatment, and three being referred to as “no patients” because they were on the scene but not injured.
Six ambulances and two EMS units are currently responding to the scene and attempting to reach one of the crane operators, the agency said.
One operator remains in the machine with his foot on the brake to prevent the cranes from collapsing. The Austin Fire Department said it was unlikely, though, that these cranes would collapse.
