Authorities said two cranes collided and at least partially collapsed at a construction site in Austin, Texas, injuring at least 22 people.

Footage posted by TV station KVUE after Wednesday’s accident shows two cranes tangled several stories above a building under construction a few miles north of downtown in a rapidly growing neighborhood that includes residential, retail and office space.

Austin-Travis County EMS reports that at least 22 people were hurt, including at least seven who were being treated and prepped for transport to a hospital. At least eight ambulances were headed to the scene.
