Crane Overturn in Salt Lake City

10/16/13

Salt Lake City, Utah

The crane, a new looking National Crane owned by local crane rental company Wagstaff, was short rigged – with outriggers jacks set up with in the vehicle’s width. The load and the radius proved too much for the configuration and the unit went over, spilling fuel into the road. Fortunately no one was injured and the crane was soon ‘righted’ with the help of another crane. The damage to crane and building appeared minimal.
