    Crane base blamed in collapse - By ANDREA JAMES, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
    A poorly designed foundation was the primary cause of the tower crane collapse in Bellevue, a deadly construction accident that spurred state lawmakers Friday to introduce crane-safety bills that would rank among the toughest in the nation.

    A three-month investigation into the crash by the Department of Labor and Industries has found that the crane's steel foundation failed, and that the 210-foot-high structure would not have toppled if it had been bolted into concrete like most other tower cranes, sources close to the investigation told the Seattle P-I.
