Workers remove a fallen crane from across the sidewalk at BTS Phra Khanong on Sukhumvit Road on Sunday in Bangkok.

BANGKOK — A construction crane came crashing down Sunday onto the sidewalk of Sukhumvit Road.

At about 11am, the construction crane at the site of a new community mall called Boutique fell onto the public street. No one was reported injured in the accident.

Officers shut down Exit No. 1 of the Skytrain station, and workers were clearing the scene Sunday afternoon. The crane also took down two utility poles, according to Phra Khanong official Acharadee Chaisurirat.

She believed the accident was caused by loose earth due to weeks of heavy rainfall but would report the incident to the police and seek compensation from the construction firm.
