A camera has captured the dramatic moment when a crane collapsed into a suburban street in California, where one person was injured and three houses were damaged.
The incident occurred on Monday afternoon in Long Beach, while the crane was used to replace an electricity pole in a back yard.
The collapse was caught on Jerry Gilmore's doorbell camera, who lives directly across the street and the shocking images with KTLA.
It shows the crane attached to the rear of a truck before the vehicle suddenly starts to tilt sideways under the weight of the falling piece of machine.
The truck falls on its side while the crane collapses in an adjacent backyard, causing a loud bang.
A spectator is seen in the neighborhood and seems completely bewildered about what he has just seen.

Pastor Carl Kromminga was on the terrace of his house when the collapse took place and was injured when he was hit by falling debris.
& # 39; I didn't know if it was one of the telephone poles or if the tap had come down or whatever. The only thing I could see was that the roof over my terrace had collapsed and had not crushed me, & he said ABC 7.
He soon realized that he was bleeding and was taken to the emergency room.
Father Kromminga received several stitches in his head and spent the night in the hospital, but is expected to fully recover,

Meanwhile, the news station says that three houses & # 39; destroyed & # 39; were during the incident and that they broadcast aerial recordings of the homes with damage to their roofs.
Gilmore – whose camera recorded the collapse – told KTLA that the power was turned off for several hours after the incident.
Southern California Edison, however, said the services were fast to 6,600 homes.
The company has released a statement that states: & # 39; Our thoughts are with the resident who was injured in the incident. SCE is currently investigating and investigating the circumstances surrounding this incident & # 39 ;.
