Texas Crane Overturn

08/12/15

San Antonio, Texas

A truck crane overturned on a highway ramp in San Antonio, Texas yesterday, while lifting a concrete lane divider barrier.

The crane, a Terex T780, owned by local crane supplier Alamo was lifting the barrier with outriggers inboard and boom only very partially extended when it appears to have simply lost stability – due to overloading for its configuration
