crane-collapse

A crane collapse has occurred at a building site in Gosford, damaging 2 cars and breaking the cross arms of power poles.

Power lines were pulled down when the crane collapsed, with the crane driver escaping without injury after being trapped in the cabin for a while.

At least 600 homes and businesses had their power interrupted, but most of them had power restored within 90 minutes. 50 homes and businesses had no power overnight.

According to SafeWork NSW it appears that the 40 tonne crawler crane tipped over while slewing, bringing down power lines and damaging two motor vehicles before coming to rest on the road.

Thankfully no workers were injured in the incidents.
