MILWAUKEE - A crane constructing a building on Milwaukee's east side fell onto multiple cars Friday afternoon, damaging four and leaving two people with minor injuries.

It happened just before 2 p.m. Friday near Prospect Ave. and North Ave.

Two people were injured when the car they were in was hit.  Milwaukee Police said they are not seeking medical attention, and suffered only very minor injuries.

The three other damaged cars were unoccupied. Police say the accident happened when the crane, which was lifting building material, overturned.
