WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - A crane flipped over into a building under construction in West Ashley Thursday afternoon.

The incident occurred at a construction site along Charlie Hall Boulevard shortly after 1 p.m. No injuries were reported.

According to the site's manager, the building under construction is future office space, but no tenant has been named at this point.

Officials on the scene say two other cranes will be brought in to lift the fallen crane Thursday afternoon. One lane of Charlie Hall Boulevard will be closed temporarily while the crane is pulled upright, a construction site manager said. Motorists in the area should watch for a flagman.
