The crane narrowly missed the building and we understand that no one was injured.

We are told that the four axle truck mounted crane is owned by Quick Pick Crane Service of New Hampshire, a representative from the company said: “the truck had remained on the spot all day until the stabilizer punched through the septic tank. The crews had only one tree left to remove when the truck tipped. I wasn’t aware we were sitting on a septic tank. It wasn’t marked on the paperwork.”
