A toppled cherry-picker shut down a busy intersection in San Francisco's Tenderloin District Friday morning.

The picker flipped over at Ellis and Leavenworth Streets at around 8 a.m. It hit a lamp post and brought down some window-washing equipment at a nearby building at the intersection. Police say the cherry-picker was hauling construction material for a nearby work site.

No one was hurt and the cause of the accident is under investigation.
