At least one man was killed and at least two other people were hurt when a crawler crane collapsed in a busy lower Manhattan neighborhood Friday morning, fire officials say.
The collapse was reported near Worth and Church streets in Tribeca shortly before 8:30 a.m., fire officials said.
Images from the scene show the crane crashed on a narrow lower Manhattan street, resting atop several smashed cars that were apparently parked. The base of the crane is upended.
The crane also hit a few buildings as it came down, a city official said.
More than 100 firefighters have responded to the scene…
