Tree Takes Boom Truck in Chatanooga

08/20/18

A boom truck owned by a tree care company overturned onto a house in Chattanooga, Tennessee while working to remove a tree from the front yard.

The crane was owned and operated by Big Woody’s Tree Service, thankfully no one was injured in the incident, although some significant damage was done to the roof and front façade of the house. A photo we have received suggests that the rear outriggers were not fully extended, but they may well have retracted as the crane tipped.

The boom truck was later recovered by Doug Yates Towing, using a heavy duty long boomed wrecker.
