Lost crane

A crawler crane came off of its trailer on Highway 15, just north the small town of Laurel, between Jackson Mississippi and Mobile, Alabama on Wednesday.

Three large wrecker trucks were brought into help recover the crane, something they managed to do over a period of nine hours. As far as we understand no one was hurt in the incident.

If the truck/trailer combination in the picture was the unit the crane fell off from, I would submit it wasn't a good decision to use that type trailer.

Rather a lowboy/lowbed, or what you chaps on the other side of the pond call a low loader. Then the crane would have been inches from the ground instead of feet.
