Crane boom collapses; no injuries reported

CASPER Wyoming— A crane boom collapsed near the intersection of East Second and McKinley streets on Monday afternoon.

No injuries and no extensive property damage were reported, said Lee Watts, safety manager for Energy Transportation Inc.

A small utility shed located behind a business was destroyed in the crane’s fall, however.

The accident occurred at about 3 p.m. Monday as workers were attempting to pin the 350-ton crane’s boom after the move of a structure near the intersection.

Late Monday, workers with the company were still working to secure the boom.
