A crane collapse in Newmarket, Ont., left a male victim critically injured on Monday, officials say, after York Regional Police told Global News emergency crews were called to the scene at 180 Main Street shortly before 1 p.m.

Police said there were reports of a male trapped under a beam, as a spokesperson for Ornge air ambulance said they responded to the industrial accident, which involved a crane collapse.

A male patient was then taken To St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto with critical injuries. There is no word on what may have caused the incident, and police said the Ministry of Labour will investigate.
