Hamburg, Germany

A delivery driver lost control of a self-erecting tower crane that he was transporting to site, near Hamburg, Germany yesterday.

The man was passing by the town of Alveslohe, to the north of Hamburg, when he says he was startled by the shadow of an animal and swerved to avoid it, causing the crane to flip over. The road was blocked for more than five hours while crews worked to remove it. Thankfully now was hurt or injured in the incident.
