Crane Truck Overturns in Marshall County, West Virginia, No Injuries reported
The Wheeling News-Register / Intelligencer reports that a large crane truck that was used at a natural gas drilling site overturned around midnight on Wednesday of last week. The accident occurred in southern Marshall County on Burch Ridge when the crane driver — returning the vehicle to Stephenson Equipment of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania — allegedly took a turn too sharply, flipped the rig, and blocked the roadway.
Because the truck was so large, the West Virginia Division of Highways was forced to close the road for most of the day as crews cleared the accident debris. Local law enforcement arrived at the scene soon after the crash was reported, and thankfully found that neither the driver nor his passenger were injured in the incident.
