Crane rolls

An operator escaped injury yesterday after his crane rolled down an embankment near Craven Arms in Shropshire, UK.

The 40 tonne All Terrain crane was travelling on an unclassified road behind Stokesay Castle when it got stuck and then rolled, coming to rest upside down.
The 54 year-old operator was in the carrier cab when it rolled but escaped uninjured.
