Crane Accidents

Firefighters Seriously Injured

10/20/14

Attersee, Austria

Two firemen were seriously injured on Saturday in Seewalchen am Attersee, in central Austria after the loader crane on the truck they were driving struck a railway bridge and overturned.

The two men, 36 and 43, were transporting a wrecked car on the back of the truck and had not properly stowed the articulated crane. The boom was too high to pass under the bridge and the resulting impact overturned the truck crushing the cab.

The passenger – the younger of the two – was airlifted to hospital while the driver was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. We do not what their current condition is.
