    ORLANDO, Fla. - The entrance to the 408 at Division Avenue has reopened after a crane toppled Wednesday morning at the intersection near Gore Street, the Orlando police department said. 

     

    Police said no one was hurt and that ramp closures were already anticipated for the area. 

     

    The crane operator was strapped in and wearing all of his safety equipment, but was still taken to the hospital as a precaution.

    As far as when the crane will be removed, crews said they can't rush the process for safety reasons. 

     

     

    The crane operator was preparing an operation for some overnight work when the crane tipped over, officials said. 

     

    There was no damage to any of the construction work that was already done, but some power lines were impacted.
