The initial sequence of events points towards the crane arm striking a nearby fence. This resulted in an imbalance, causing the massive machine to topple over and land on the unsuspecting pickup truck. The identity of the truck’s owner has yet to be established.

The accident didn’t spare the crane operator, who suffered moderate injuries to his hip and legs. First responders at the scene administered immediate medical assistance before transferring him to a local hospital for further treatment, reported The Pattaya News.
