Crews working on refurbishing the Purdue Bell Tower on the Purdue University campus accidentally dropped the giant clock face on Tuesday.

The clock face fell nearly 160 feet, striking a crane bucket two workers were standing in, before falling to the ground and shattering.

The company hired to refurbish the mid-20th century building is investigating what caused the accident.

No injuries were reported following the incident.
