Rough Terrain Crane Overturn

09/11/15

Dayton, Ohio

A Rough Terrain crane overturned on Tuesday in Dayton, Ohio while pouring concrete injuring the operator.

The crane looks to have its outriggers properly extended, but we understand that one of them was set up on soft ground which subsided causing the crane to lose stability as it slewed. The operator suffered what were described by the emergency services as “moderate”

No one else was involved in the incident and the overturned crane was removed by a larger one later in the day.
