A boom truck tipped over while delivering lumber to a low-rise condominium construction project on West 1st Avenue at Vine Street yesterday afternoon. The truck tipped over shortly after 1:00pm and it took almost five hours to put the truck back on its wheels. Another crane was used to upright the truck and return it to the street.
Eyewitness reports claim that the sidewalk beneath the truck support gave out, causing the truck to tip and dangle precariously near the edge of the excavation pit.
No one was hurt in the incident, which is currently under investigation by WorkSafeBC.
