Crane Over in Austin

06/10/15

Austin Texas

A truck mounted crane overturned in Austin Texas yesterday causing damage to a building, thankfully no one was hurt in the incident and the crane was quickly recovered.

We have very few details, but it seems the outriggers of the three axle truck crane were set up on a grass bank, and possibly not extended? However simply would not support the crane once it went over the side. Fortunately the boom came to rest on the awning of a building preventing a full overturn and more damage.
