Emergency services are at the location of the crane that crashed into a house and garage on the Sunshine Coast.

The crane fell silently into the house and garage on the Sunshine Coast.

At 4:45 pm on Friday, they were called to Bradley Crescent in Nirimba, west of Caloundra.

A police spokesman said the crane fell on a garage and house.

The Queensland Ambulance Service posted on social media that no injuries have been reported.

Police said the crane operator will be at the site of the crane accident on the Sunshine Coast for alternative arrangements for residents of the damaged home.

At the site of a crane accident, police said residents were not injured when an 80-ton vehicle crashed into three houses.

Tony Hurley, a police officer for the Sunshine Coast Police District, said three people were in one of the homes at the time of the crash at Nirimba Benjamin Crescent around 4:30 p.m. on Friday.

Jaiden Corrigan, who lives in the neighborhood, said he was home when he heard loud noises.

“I was looking for the front door and waiting for someone to come near my house and I saw the crane go up slowly,” said Mr. Corrigan.

“I thought it was going too fast and the next moment I heard the big bang.”

He said he jumped in his car and drove to see what happened there.

“It was really big noise,” he said

“Everyone on the street heard it, everyone was running.”

Caloundra firefighter Kim Gray said the impact of the crash was significant and firefighters worked to prop up damaged homes.

Mr. Gray said that unfortunately the crane made contact with three houses.

Fortunately, there are no injuries to the crane operator, neighbors or anyone in the house.

He said the crane would stay where it was overnight so the incident could be properly investigated on Saturday.

He said the police were on the scene overnight and the health and safety officers were on their way.

Sergeant Harley said, “It really is a miracle and people are lucky they weren’t injured in this incident.”
