Crane slips off wind farm road

Another All Terrain crane became a casualty of narrow wind farm approach roads in Ireland last week.

The crane, owned by McKinney’s Crane Hire of Strabane, Northern Ireland, was travelling to or from a remote wind farm in Croagh, County Donegal, when the edge of the road gave way causing it tip onto its side. Thankfully no one was hurt in the incident.
Possibly not the best method of crane recovery?

The company moved excavators to the site in order to try and rescue the stranded crane, by pulling it upright.
