Third crane collapse since April on I-25

Comments Off

Last week in Colorado Springs, a crane collapsed over I-25 for the third time since a fatal accident in April. Fortunately no one was injured in this crane accident that dropped a girder onto the open highway and closed the I-25 for many hours.

This has been the third accident since the $150 million COSMIX construction project began. An April crane collapse killed a worker. Many are wondering why so many accidents are happening, and what needs to happen to bring higher safety levels to the construction site.
