Crane collapse in LIC

From Daily News:

The crane tipped at 46th Ave. and Center Blvd. in Long Island City about 2:20 p.m., authorities said. Three of the injuries were serious, authorities said. Two of the injured workers were taken to New York-Presbyterian Cornell hospital and five to Elmhurst Medical Center.

Investigators were trying to determine what caused the equipment to collapse.

The crane is owned by New York Crane, whose owner, James Lomma, was acquitted of criminally negligent homicide charges stemming from the 2008 crane collapse on the Upper East Side that killed two construction workers.
