A toppled rough terrain crane lies across eastbound Highway 16 on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, as state Transportation Department employees survey the scene. The incident happened on Monday morning, March 27, 2006, in Tacoma, Washington.

Transportation Department spokeswoman Claudia Cornish said a work crew was finishing a job and the crane was turning around when it lost its balance and crashed across the guard rail. No one was hurt.
