Crane Does a Backward Flip

05/23/13

Offenbach, Germany

An All Terrain crane over turned in Offenbach, near Frankfurt, Germany, last week, crushing a covered trailer and damaging a car.

The crane, owned by Homburg based crane rental company Spengler, was reportedly loading a large membrane filter press onto the trailer when it flipped over backwards. The boom landed on the trailer and then came down across a road onto a BMW parked in a car park on the opposite side of the street.
Fortunately no one was hurt in the incident, however the crane operator is said to have suffered from shock. The incident is being investigated.
