A construction boom crane collapsed across a roadway in New York City on Tuesday morning. 

An NYPD spokesperson told Fox News Digital on Tuesday that a crane collapsed in the 52nd Precinct, serving the Bronx.  

At approximately 10:38 a.m., a boom truck collapsed onto a roadway at Jerome Ave. and W. Bedford Park Blvd, crushing a car, the New York City Fire Department told Fox News Digital. 

The building under construction appears to be undamaged, the fire department said. FDNY evacuated approximately 29 workers from the site out of precaution pending an evaluation by the New York City Department of Buildings. EMS treated and transported two patients to St. Barnabas Hospital. The extent of the injuries remained unclear.
