Truck Accident in Residential Neighborhood Highlights Danger of Mobile Cranes

A scary truck accident in a single family home's driveway last month shined a light on just how dangerous mobile truck-based booms can be especially when in the hands of inexperienced operators. Usually crane accidents in NYC involve lost loads or toppling booms at construction sites. However, there are thousands of smaller, truck-based cranes in the city that are used to deliver construction materials, reach rooves of smaller homes, or de-limb trees. Truck accidents in New York City involving these small cranes are rare but can be devastating.
