A crane boom came down alongside an interstate highway on Tuesday night near Dallas airport in Texas. The job involves construction of an overpass for state Highway 161 at I-20.
The crane, a Manitowoc 14000 was lifting a large concrete beam at the time, when the boom appears to have buckled. Fortunately if came to rest on the overpass (Flyover) while the load landed just inside the concrete barriers with I-20 and no one was injured in the incident. There is no indication at this point of what might have caused the boom to collapse.
