MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - An investigation into the high-reach excavator that crashed into an Ocean Blvd. condo building just over a week ago is underway.

South Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating after the machine overturned, crashing into the Boardwalk Beach Resort while working on a construction site.

Investigations generally take at least 8 weeks. SC OSHA looks for any OSHA violations that may have in any way contributed to the incident.

Myrtle Beach Fire Department said no one was injured, but there is damage to the building.

MBPD Captain Jon Evans confirmed the Boardwalk Beach Resort was unoccupied at the time of the incident and the plans are for that building to be torn down at a later date.

The excavator was lifted from the building last Tuesday.
