A crane fell on an Olive Garden restaurant in Camden County on Friday morning.

The incident happened at around 9:30 a.m. at the Voorhees restaurant located at 202 Laurel Oak Road.

Authorities say the crane was being used to help a crew working to replace a rooftop air conditioning unit.

Investigators are still working to determine why the crane became unbalanced and fell into the building.

The view from Chopper 6 HD showed the crane appeared to be still attached to the unit, and the crane was off its wheels and suspended in the air.

Olive Garden officials say they are currently assessing any potential damage to the roof and, if everything checks out, they are hoping to open for dinner tonight.

No injuries have been reported.
