Firefighters and city officials inspect the site where a boom truck tipped over in Flushing on Jan. 24.

A large truck tipped over in a construction zone on Wednesday morning in Flushing, damaging a nearby building and several cars parked nearby.

Nobody was hurt in the accident, a spokesman for the FDNY said.

The boom truck — a truck with a crane arm on its bed for lifting construction materials — was in the area of 162nd Street and 46th Avenue in Flushing when the accident occurred.

The Fire Department received a 911 call about the incident at approximately 9:41 a.m. on Jan. 24. When the truck tipped over, the extended crane arm landed on top of several parked cars and struck a building, fire officials said.

Firefighters are working with the Department of Buildings to resolve the situation, the FDNY spokesperson said.
