Crane Rolls

West Virginia

A four axle All Terrain crane rolled down an embankment in West Virgina in a remote area to the south east of Wheeling yesterday

The crane, owned by Anthony Crane of Pittsburgh, was travelling from a gas drilling site in Marshall County when it veered off the road and rolled over several times. The driver walked away from the incident without a scratch.

There was some minor fuel and oil leakage which has been contained. The question now is how to recover it. Options are limited and are likely to revolve around dismantling it into three or four pieces.
