CLOSTER, NJ – A crane truck was up-ended after a trial run in a local school parking lot in Closter over the weekend, according to Daily Voice.
The new owner of a truck-mounted crane had taken the vehicle to Hillside Elementary school to test it out while the parking lots were empty over the weekend. One of the riggers failed, causing the truck to up-end, which lifted all four tires off the ground and the cab was high in the air.
The driver, a 53-year-old Cresskill man, was able to get out of the cab by the time emergency crews arrived and was uninjured. He has been cited for violating a borough ordinance.
The accident did not cause damage beyond the diesel spill at the scene. It took several hours to right the crane.
