Crane overturns in Texas

29. December 2016 | Comments (0)

A Rough Terrain crane overturned in Arlington Texas yesterday pulling overhead power lines down onto the Highway.

A Rough Terrain crane overturned in Arlington Texas yesterday pulling overhead power lines down onto the Interstate 30 highway halfway between Forth Worth and Dallas. The crane, a larger Lorain, was working on a road job constructing a new overpass when it overturned. Fortunately no one was hurt, although the highway was closed in both directions while the power lines were properly deactivated.

The crane’s outriggers were correctly set up with mats under the pads. It looks as though the cause must be down to overloading, although we do not know what it was lifting at the time, but photos show that the boom came down into an open top shipping container. We will update when we learn more.
