Crane Collision Closes Road

01/23/15

M11 Motorway in the UK

A coach collided with All Terrain crane this morning on the M11 motorway in the UK, blocking one lane on the northbound section between junction five and six.

The two axle All Terrain crane – thought to be a 20 ton Kobelco RK200 owned by Emerson Crane Hire – overturned after coming into contact with the coach this morning. Fortunately the crane operator, along with the coach driver and his five passengers, were unharmed in the incident.

Two hours after the incident however, with the lane closed due to an oil spill, four cars were involved in an incident as they passed the scene. Two women are currently being treated for head and neck injuries.
