FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – At least one person is injured after a crane fell on a high-voltage electrical line in downtown Fort Lauderdale, fire rescue officials say.

The crane operator, who was jolted off, has been rushed to Broward Health Medical Center as a trauma alert.

Stephen Gollan, battalion chief for Fort Lauderdale fire rescue, said the crane collapsed onto a Florida Power and Light electrical line Wednesday morning at 300 Southwest 2nd Street, causing an explosion on the asphalt and damaging a number of vehicles.

Nobody was injured at a nearby restaurant where people were eating.
