A large boom lift came off the back of a truck in Brisbane, Australia this morning after it struck a bridge in Kangaroo Point.
The boom struck the overpass as it went under
Photos indicate that the riser on the JLG – possibly an 800 series articulating boom – was not full stowed, raising its height by a critical 200 to 300 mm or so. The incident occurred as rush hour traffic was getting underway, causing considerable delays.
It looks as though the riser was not fully lowered
