A crane collapse at a construction site in west Oklahoma City spilled diesel fuel and other fluids into a storm drain, prompting a response from hazmat crews. 

The collapse occurred at the Oklahoma Territory Construction Company site located in the 3800 block of W. Reno Ave.

Authorities tell News 9 the collapsed crane leaked diesel fuel, transmission fluid and hydraulic fluid out onto the ground. A representative from the construction company told Oklahoma City fire crews that the crane held approximately 150 gallons of diesel fuel.
