    A 51-year-old man was killed and another person was injured after a boom truck crane toppled over in downtown Dallas Monday afternoon, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue officials.

    The truck overturned at about 2:45 p.m. near a T-Mobile cell phone tower at 1700 Arts Plaza.

    Authorities said Isidro Morales, a worker on the ground, was pinned by the crane and died at the scene.

    Officials said the crane operator was not injured and another worker on the ground sustained injuries that were not life threatening.

    It is unclear at this time what caused the crane truck to topple over, and Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman James Evans said officials don't know what type of work was being done at the time of the incident.
