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

“Unfortunately, the crane made contact with three apartments,” said Gray.

“The lucky part of this is that there are no injuries, including the crane operator or any of the neighbors or anyone in the houses.”

Senior Sergeant Hurley said he understood that the crane owner had made sure that residents displaced by the crash had shelter for at least the night.
