LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

There were no injuries Monday morning after a small crane tipped over at the Golden Nugget Casino construction site in Lake Charles.

Mississippi-based Yates Construction is the general contractor for the Landry's Inc. project, which is scheduled to be completed in December.

"Early this morning, a small moveable crane tipped over while picking up a load," said Jeff Cantwell, senior vice president of development at Landry's Inc. "Thankfully, no one was injured."

Kenny Bush, spokesman for Yates, confirmed that there were no injuries and said the incident will not affect the construction schedule.

The massive project involves the construction of a 750-room resort and hotel for Houston-based Landry's Inc. at a 242-acre site owned by the Port of Lake Charles.
