Crane overturns in Baltimore

20. May 2015 | Comments (3)

A three axle All Terrain crane overturned in the city of Baltimore Maryland yesterday while setting up at outside the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, located in the city centre.

The crane appears to have slewed over the side with the retracted boom fully raised, counterweight in place and no outriggers set. As a result it went over backwards, with the boom landing against the building. We understand that there were no injuries.

The incident did cause a road closure though, with the machine scheduled to be recovered late last night.
