    -- A crane reportedly fell onto a tractor-trailer and several cars at the Maumee River crossing on Interstate 280 in Toledo Monday afternoon, according to Local 4 reports.

    A fire captain in Toledo says five people have been pulled from the site and taken to area hospitals. The extent of their injuries is unknown.

    The crane fell onto the Craig Memorial Bridge. The northbound lanes of the interstate were blocked off to traffic.

    The construction project is the largest highway project in Ohio history, costing $280 million, according to WNWO-Toledo.

    Sky 4 crews were heading to the scene.
