A boom truck lifting a tree in East Falls, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, overturned yesterday injuring a man in a bucket truck.
The boom truck, owned by Arader Tree Service, was apparently supporting a large tree limb while the man in the bucket truck was cutting it free, the crane overturned and either it or the tree smashed the bucket from the end of the boom. We understand that the man’s injuries are not life threatening.
An All Terrain crane was called in to recover the stricken boom truck, which was able to retract its boom and appeared to have suffered surprisingly little damage.
