Woburn Crane Accident 1

A truck crane overturned on 25th March while removing tree limbs from the rear of a house in Woburn, on the north side of Boston Massachusetts.

There is few details of the incident apart from the fact that it had around 33 metres of boom out and appears to have lifted too large of a tree section for the radius. It also looks as if one of the rear outriggers might have sunked a little.

No serious injuries were reported and damages were largely restricted to the boom truck-based crane. Luckily it came down between the buildings, and although it bought down a power line, it could so easily have been much worse.
