An All Terrain crane caught fire on the M-62 motorway in the UK, between junction 22 and 23 near Huddersfield after.
It seems that a fire broke out in the chassis engine compartment yesterday evening and the operator appears to have started to raise the boom away from the fire. The fire caught hold however and resulted in an explosion, which was caught on a web cam. The police have confirmed that no one was hurt in the incident, but that it was cleaning up oil and diesel spills.
The incident resulted in the road being closed for some time and causing massive tailbacks. We have no further information at this stage but have received the video link below and some photographs and will of course update this item as we learn more. But it is just one more example of an All Terrain catching fire during road travel.
