Truck mount overturn

A truck crane/boom truck overturned on Wednesday in the town of Lakewood in the south west corner of New York State.

The crane owned by Maple Tree Services, was set up on grass with some timber shoring when it seems one of the outriggers slipped off and plunged into the lawn, causing the crane to overturn. The crane was working at a large residential property on the edge of the Lake.
The outrigger sank into the lawn

Thankfully no one was injured in the incident, but there were reports of a fuel or oil leakage. The company runs a large range of equipment, including truck mounted aerial work platforms and several cranes, but does not seem to own many outrigger mats.

Suitable training would prevent this.

The cost of outrigger mats would be minuscule compared to the cost to resurrect this accident plus downtime of the equipment.
