Inspectors with the NYC Department of Buildings are in Brooklyn after a boom truck flipped on its side. NewsCopter 7 was over the scene on 36th Street just before 10 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities say a collapse at a construction site at 840 Fifth Avenue caused the truck to overturn, hitting the side of the ACTS Christian Church. Firefighters evacuated three people from the premise, but no injuries were reported. Inspectors determined that the truck was in the process of unloading a trailer of building materials at the site when it tipped over onto its side, and the boom struck the neighboring building at 467 36th street, as well as the tractor of the delivery truck. Inspectors will determine if the church sustained any structural damage.
