Crane slips into ditch

A three axle All Terrain crane overturned earlier this month on a remote road in Scotland.

The crane, a 55 tonne Liebherr All Terrain crane owned by Ainscough Crane Hire, was travelling down the narrow track when it appears to have got to close to the edge of road, slipped into the verge/ditch and rolled into the brush.

Fortunately no one was injured in the incident.

not really the only person who can make the decision to move the crane to close to the edge of the road is the operator. so if it's the case that the road is good enough to handle the crane it must be operator error.

One question , why did he get so close too the edge of the road ? the road looks good and if the driver had stayed in the center this would not have happened , theres no good reason to get so close to the edge , did another veichle insist on the crane moving over ? more to this than meets the eye i think.
