A crane at the construction site of SoFi Stadium in Inglewood collapsed Friday morning, but no injuries were reported, according to fire officials.

Firefighters received a call just before 8:45 a.m. of a possible crane collapse, said Hans Christian of the L.A. County Fire Department. Three units were dispatched to the scene.

Television news footage showed a massive yellow crane tipped onto its side at the construction site.

Firefighters remain at the scene “as a precaution” while construction crews work to determine if they can use other cranes on site to remove the damaged crane, Christian said.

No damage estimate was immediately available.
