Lorain LRT 350 Rough Terrain Crane tipped over in Arlington Texas.

One car on I-30 did strike the cable, but no one was injured. The crane operator was not hurt when the crane turned over.  The operator is staying inside the operators cab because the live wires could electrocute him.

Oncor is onsite so the cables can safely be removed. There is currently no word on how long the highway will be shut down.
