Interstate 30 at Ballpark Way was closed in both directions for about two hours Wednesday because of downed power lines.

A construction crane was working at the Extended Stay America Six Flags in the 2400 block of east I-30 around 11:20 a.m. when it tipped over, causing power lines to fall across all lanes of I-30 near Ballpark Way, police said.

Both directions of I-30 were shut down for almost two hours while Oncor cleared the power lines.

The crane operator was not injured. One vehicle on the interstate struck the lines but no one was injured.
