ANNANDALE, Va. — A small crane tipped over and collapsed onto the roof of a Fairfax County elementary school, causing minor structural damage.

No one was injured.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue spokesman Dan Schmidt said the accident occurred about 8:40 a.m. Tuesday at Canterbury Woods Elementary in Annandale.

Staff was in the building at the time of the accident, which occurred a few minutes before most kids were scheduled to arrive.

Fairfax County Public Schools spokesman John Torre said Canterbury Woods is in the midst of a renovation project, and that the damage did not disrupt the school day. Classes were being held as scheduled.

Schmidt says there was also a small diesel fuel spill that was contained.
