A two axle All Terrain crane belonging to the UK Army, came off the back of a truck earlier today on a motorway near Rosyth, Scotland.
The delivery truck was heading south on the M-90 motorway towards the new Queensferry crossing bridge to Edinburgh when the load broke free on straight section close to a junction. Given that this occurred on a straight section of road, one assumes that the truck was forced to brake suddenly and sharply, causing the tie down slings/chains to break?
The incident blocked the road for some time and caused traffic chaos, but thankfully no one was injured or hurt. If it had landed on a car passing in the fast lane this could have been a very nasty accident.
