MOT Torrenueva Crane IncidentThere is very little news but it appears that a mobile heavy crane tipped over in Torrenueva on Thursday, standing end up with all its wheel facing the paseo marítimo.

The accident happened on the narrow lane leading down between two blocks of flats, Calle Batel.

Apparently, the crane operators were engaged in erecting a static construction crane when it tipped backwards with the gantry falling back along the street.

Anybody on the paseo at the time would have seen the bottom of a vehicles with six wheels protruding. If somebody had looked out of their 3rd-storey window, the view would have been equally startling.

Fortunately, nobody was hurt.

The area had to be cordoned off until they could figure out how to remove it, which didn’t take place until the next afternoon when two other cranes arrived to right it. Click on the photo credit below for more photos.
