An apartment building at Elan City Lights complex was crushed after a Dallas storm caused a construction crane to unexpectedly collapse.

Jason Evans, Dallas Fire-Rescue, stated to reporters that five people were in serious and critical condition and that one person was killed. The reported death was a woman who was inside of the apartment building that was crushed. It is believed that the crane collapsed from high winds during a thunderstorm.
