    Default South Dakota crane topple

    Anyone seen any good info on Buckner's LR-11000 that went over backwards in SD recently?

    I haven’t heard anything about it. Usually the people involved in these accidents try to keep them quiet if they can.

    Articles said they were moving it when it happened. The ground probably gave way or they didn't have the mats set right.

    HUH!...
    I live 150 miles from there, and have never heard of that particular wind farm, nor had I heard of the crane collapse...

    Conspiracy theorists, chime in!
