Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans told reporters at a briefing on the accident that a woman in the apartment building was killed when the crane cut a gash in the apartment building, apparently slicing through some of the apartments.

No other details were immediately available.

Dallas was under a severe thunderstorm watch at the time with winds that could exceed 70 mph.
