I have constant crashes when working with tables especially when adding text boxes as anchored objects within a frame. This was never an issue in previous versions of InDesign. Currently in version CC 2014.
Try restoring your InDesign preferences. Here's how:
Trash, Replace, Reset, or Restore the application Preferences
If the problem is only in one complex document. Export this document to IDML, the open the IDML Dokument. By opening an IDML File the InDesign-Document is build from scratch.
