Crane Accidents

Crane Falls on House

07/21/00

Wish, Indiana

The plan was for it to carry the tree away, but instead a crane got carried right into the house.

John Long hired professionals to remove a dead tree from his yard. But the crane operator miscalculated the size of the tree. The crane became top heavy and fell on the Long’s house.

“It was a slow crunching sound. I thought it maybe a limb fell through the shed,” said neighbor John Durrer.

The tree and crane did extensive damage to the garage, kitchen and utility room.

The tree company is starting repairs on the house immediately.
