    The Latest: Tenant Files Negligence Suit Over Crane Collapse
    By The Associated Press

    June 11, 2019

    DALLAS — The Latest on the aftermath of a severe storm that caused widespread damage to the Dallas area (all times local):

    9:20 p.m.

    A negligence suit has been filed on behalf of a 27-year-old mixed martial arts fighter against the operator of a crane that collapsed onto her apartment building.

    The owner of the building and the project the crane was being used to build also are named in the suit.

    Macy Chiasson is an Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter. In her 11-page petition filed Tuesday, her attorney says Chiasson was left homeless by the Sunday collapse, just as were the more than 500 other tenants of the Elan City Lights apartments.

    Officials say the collapse, which killed one tenant and injured five others, rendered the building uninhabitable.

    Chiasson says she has lost all of her possessions, including her training equipment. She is suing in state district court in Dallas County for more than $1 million and a court order to preserve the wreckage for study.

    Messages sent to the crane operator, Bigge Crane and Rigging, and the owner of the buildings, Greystar Real Estate Partners, drew no immediate response.
