Happened Wednesday at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. Minor injury to crane operator. Four cars crushed. Two smaller buildings damaged. The crane was 350 high when it tipped over and fell westward, this WUSA story reports. Talk about physics in action! That's a Grove crane, correct? One of their big-boys, in the 300 or 500 ton range?  See more photos. Or even tool over to YouTube, and search on "crane tips over." There are numerous videos such incidents happening elsewhere.
