Driver escapes as mobile crane rolls

27 Oct 11 A crane driver escaped with only minor injuries yesterday morning when his Terex Demag AC40-1 'city' crane flipped over on a residential road in County Durham.

The three-axle crane has a single cab mounted high on the crane for both driving and crane operations.

The vehicle toppled over as it came down a hill on the A694 in Ebchester at about 07:30am, the BBC reports, causing traffic delays during the morning rush hour.

The crane belongs to the Dutch crane rental group Mammoet, which operates a rental fleet of mobile cranes in the northeast.
