Boxford, Massachusetts

State and federal safety officials were notified yesterday about a crane accident at Masconomet Regional High School, where a $54 million building project is underway.

The accident occurred at 9:55 a.m. after a cable crane operator apparently left the machine “but did not set the brake properly on the cable drum,” said Boxford Police Lt. Robert Hazelwood.

The crane eventually collapsed onto an 18-wheeler truck on the school site at 20 Endicott Road, Hazelwood said.

No injuries resulted, he added.

However, the state’s Department of Public Safety as well as federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration offices were notified of the accident, Hazelwood said.
