VIDEO: A woman died and at least five more people were injured Sunday afternoon when a crane fell into an Old East Dallas apartment building as storms pummeled the Dallas area. Crews searching Elan City Lights apartments found the woman inside an apartment after the crane crashed into the east side of the building, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said. The woman, who has not been identified, was later pronounced dead. The other five people were hospitalized at Parkland Memorial Hospital and Baylor University Medical Center. Two were in critical condition and two in serious condition. The fifth person was treated for a minor injury and released, Evans said. The crane, which was being used at a construction site next door, collapsed about 2 p.m. into the apartments and its parking garage in the 2600 block of Live Oak Street, near North Good-Latimer Expressway, Evans said. Emergency crews helped evacuate residents and searched for people and pets who may have been trapped.
