    A crane fell Friday in San Francisco's Tenderloin district.

    An intersection in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood was temporarily closed on Friday, after a forklift's crane fell down  at  Ellis and Leavenworth streets at about 7:30 a.m.

    MUNI buses had to be rerouted as a result of the accident and drivers were advised to avoid the area until the scene could be cleared, police said.

    Police said a few parked cars and some streetlights were damaged from the fall, but no one was injured. PG&E was called in to shut off electricity in the area as the crane was being removed from the street.
