20 Crane Accidents on Construction Sites

Feb 3rd, 2010
Are you looking for a way to slow down or stop your construction project? Here’s 20 pictures of some crane accidents that I’m sure not only slowed down these projects, but added quite a bit to the cost of those projects at the same time. Poor set-up accounts for over 60 percent of all crane tip-overs. To the best of our knowledge, these images are real, they are not doctored or photoshopped in any way.

The weight of the crane caused the cab of the machine to lift off the ground, leaning over the side of a building at a 45-degree angle. The pipe fell and landed on two work vehicles, while the actual crane landed on the roof.
