Authorities say three workers were hurt when a 100-foot crane toppled over at a construction site near the Ohio Statehouse. Columbus fire department Battalion Chief David Whiting says the injuries from the Tuesday morning accident were not life-threatening.

He says one man was trapped briefly and suffered a broken leg, while the other two were taken to hospitals with fractures.

Whiting says the crane fell onto its side as it was being used to pour concrete at the former site of the Columbus City Center mall, two blocks south of the Statehouse.

Federal workplace safety regulators are investigating.
