Crane topples into Dallas apartments, killing one

One person is dead and five others injured after a construction-site crane sliced into a Dallas apartment building during a storm Sunday afternoon, pulverizing numerous units and turning the parking garage into a heap of concrete and smashed vehicles, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue.

The crane collapsed around 2 p.m. Sunday amid strong storms in north Texas that brought winds of up to 70 mph. Video footage captured the crane slowly tilting in the air before toppling and smashing into the five-story Elan City Lights Apartments across the street from the construction site, coming to rest like a mangled sky bridge between the two structures.

The city’s Market Value Analysis, a data-driven rundown of the types of developments needed in different parts of the city.

Dallas-Fort Worth is the fourth-largest metro area in the United States, behind only New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago. The previous mayors of those three cities all had one priority initiative in common the day they were elected: Data.
