Crane overturn in Houston

A large mobile crane overturned onto a building under construction in Midtown, Houston, Texas last night. We understand that no one was hurt in the incident, but that still has not been confirmed.

The six axle All Terrain crane from the Consolidated Crane & Rigging fleet was short rigged with partial counterweight. We have been told that the cause was not related to ground issues, but more stability related.

Information on the incident is minimal, so we will update when we learn more. In the meantime raw video footage from the scene is available on YouTube.

Three cranes have been brought in to help recover the crane.
