I don't think a Silverado was designed to carry this much load...

Recommended Posts

A crane toppled over at one of our job sites today, crushing a Silverado, part of a Sierra, sheared off a corner of the contractor office, and flattened half of a guard shed. Amazingly, nobody was injured even though workers were in both buildings.

The boom crane that fell was being used to erect two larger tower cranes (taken a couple hours before it tipped over).

Glad no one was hurt, too bad they weren't Tundras getting crushed.

When's the last time you saw a Tundra on an actual work site?

There's why.
