Road Closed After Crane Overturns

Marshall County, West Virgina

Boom Truck Crane Slips Off RidgeAn early morning accident left a crane overturned and a Marshall County Road shut down.

The driver of a crane was trying to navigate through the windy, narrow curves of Birch Ridge Road when his crane toppled.

No injuries were reported, but police said Birch Ridge Road has been a problem in the past.

“We’ve had a lot of property damage from the trucks, some vehicles sliding off the roadways and now this rollover. So it’s an ongoing problem,” Chief Deputy Kevin Cecil said.

Cecil said the road is too narrow to accommodate the trucks.

Birch Ridge Road was shut down while crews worked to upright the crane.
