    A small crane tipped over and collapsed onto the roof of a Fairfax County elementary school, causing minor structural damage.

    No one was injured.

    The accident occurred about 8:40 a.m. Tuesday at Canterbury Woods Elementary on Willet Drive in Annandale, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue spokesman Dan Schmidt said.

    Staff was in the building at the time of the accident, which occurred a few minutes before most kids were scheduled to arrive.

    Canterbury Woods is in the midst of a renovation project, and that the damage did not disrupt the school day, Fairfax County Public Schools spokesman John Torre said. Classes were being held as scheduled.

    There was also a small diesel fuel spill that was contained, Schmidt said. 

    A building inspector was called to the scene, as was a tow company to remove the crane.
