RICHARDSON - Two workers were reportedly killed when a crane collapsed as crews worked to dismantle the crane Saturday at the University of Texas Dallas campus in Richardson, read a statement from the university.

The incident happened as strong winds and storms blew into North Texas.

"A lot of screaming," said Arnard Gayapershad, a witness on the campus at the time of the crash. "We heard a loud crashing sound, like metal falling from the sky. Then we heard more screaming."

The construction crane was being dismantled outside the Arts and Technology Building on the campus. The UTD statement said the two workers were from an outside construction company.
