Two workers were injured Tuesday morning when a crane collapsed on a house in West Washington.

The crane fell on the house at SW Edgewood Court in Issaquah, according to Eastside Fire & Rescue.

East Fire and Rescue battalion chief Mark Vetter says one of the workers was rushed to hospital, another suffered minor injuries and stayed on site.

“This is my worst nightmare. It’s like I’m almost not surprised,” said Trista Oliva, the owner of the house.

Oliva was working from home on Tuesday while a crew from Eastside Tree Works tried to remove a massive tree from their property.

She says her daughter warned the tree was falling and the family ran to safety.

“I just stopped shaking because I was so worried about my kids, my pets and the crew,” she said.

Crews from the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries began investigating the incident.

The huge vertical crane truck will stay in front of the house all night. The crews will work to see if they can remove it in the morning.

Photos and videos from the crime scene showed the crane resting on the house and the truck standing upright.

The owner of Eastside Tree Works posted this statement on Q13 News regarding the incident:

“First of all, we are grateful that there were no serious injuries and that everyone is going home to their families tonight. We are grateful that the family we worked in is unharmed. We thank the community and our customers for there So many people came up today to check on the safety of our team.

We have rigorous safety training and protocols to prevent accidents and the cause of this incident is currently being investigated. “
