A crane collapse in suburban Dallas has killed two construction workers.

It happened in Richardson, on the campus of the University of Texas at Dallas. The university says the crane was being disassembled at the time.

A witness in a nearby campus library told reporters the accident sounded like a loud crash of metal from the sky. He also heard screams.

The weather may have been a factor. A meteorologist with the National Weather Service says a band of thunderstorms moving through the area brought wind gusts in excess of 40 miles an hour.

The crane was being used to construct a large classroom building scheduled to be completed next year.
