Crane slips off truck

A large All Terrain crane was dumped on its side outside the port in Jacksonville, Florida yesterday after it came off a low loader as the driver performed a U-Turn after being refused entrance.

The crane had apparently been repaired and refurbished in the area and was due to be shipped out from the port. The diver did not have the correct documentation though and was turned away from the entrance. As he did a U-Turn the crane slid off and landed in the street.

Two massive wrecker trucks were called in to try and pull it back onto its wheels, followed by a truck crane.

The recovery begins - note the crane operator is confident enough about the road surface not to bother with outrigger mats!
