Tiverton, Rhode Island

A boom truck overturned in a shopping center car park in Tiverton Rhode Island yesterday, with the boom landing on a car.

The crane, owned by Dion Signs, was working on the external display lighting of the Dollar general store, when it went over. The car belonged to an employee of the store, who was at work at the time. We understand that no one was injured in the incident.

The boom landed on a parked car, pretty much destroying it

From the photograph that we have been sent, it does not look as though the outriggers were properly set? We understand that OSHA was called in to investigate.
