A large spider lift came off the back of a delivery truck on Thursday last week in the UK as it negotiated a roundabout.
The incident occurred off junction 11A of the M1 motorway, near Luton just before the evening rush hour was about to get underway. The platform, which looks like a 32 metre Falcon FS320 owned by rental company Higher Access, slipped off the truck as it went around the circle, and does not appear to have been adequately tied down.
Fortunately - given that it weighs more than 5.5 tonnes - it just landed in the road and no other vehicles or people were involved.
Even the machine itself does not look to have come off too badly from the fall.
