Crane tips onto Dallas Museum of Art, just missing sculpture

DALLAS (AP) — A truck-mounted crane has toppled onto the roof of the Dallas Museum of Art, injuring at least one person and narrowly missing a sculpture outside the building.

Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says the injured person was transported to a hospital following Friday morning’s accident. Evans had no immediate information on the victim or the nature of their injuries.

Museum officials did not immediately respond to a message seeking information on how the truck tipped over resulting in the crane coming to rest on the edge of the museum roof.

The crane just missed a towering red steel sculpture called “Ave” by Mark di Suvero, which stands on the museum’s front lawn.
