A crane collapsed this morning at a construction site in Stafford County when the ground underneath gave way.

The 200-foot tall crane overturned into a building under construction, causing significant damage to the building, but there were no injuries, said Mark Doyle of the Stafford Fire & Rescue Dept.

The construction project is on Corporate Drive in the Quantico Corporate Center. DLR Construction is the contractor, and Citadel is the owner of the crane.

Authorities continue to investigate the cause of the accident.
