Six people were taken to nearby hospitals, CBS Dallas reported, adding that one person died.
The highest recorded gust in the area was 71 miles per hour at Dallas Love Field, according to the National Weather Service, though winds were likely higher at the elevation where the crane was on top of the building.
Dallas Fire and Rescue officials said the metal frame collapsed into the apartment block near Good Latimer and Live Oak in Downtown Dallas.
The crane crashed into the east side of the Elan City Lights residential building, where crews found a woman inside an apartment and she was later pronounced dead, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said, according to The Dallas Morning News.
Evans said it is too early to say whether there may be more people hurt, killed or missing.
"Our hearts go out to everyone who has been impacted by this incident".
