One man was killed and three other people were hurt when a crawler crane being secured because of high winds toppled over in lower Manhattan Friday morning, Mayor Bill de Blasio said. The construction equipment was being lowered and secured because of winds topping 20 mph when it toppled over at Worth and Church streets in Tribeca at about 8:30 a.m., de Blasio said. The crane, owned by Bay Crane, and stretching more than 15 stories high, smashed into several buildings on the way down before crashing onto several parked cars.
