A crane overturned at a job site on the University of Maryland Baltimore County campus yesterday, after the outriggers appeared to have shifted on soft ground.
No one was hurt in the incident and little damage was done apart to the crane itself. The unit was a four axle Grove truck crane owned by local company Chesapeake Crane Service.

The crane was working with most of its main boom extended and swing-away extension stowed. The boom narrowly missed the corner of the new building and landed on some facade scaffold.
