Crane Topples, Injures Worker on Woodland Avenue
Employee of a tree-removal company suffered a fractured leg in the incident, authorities said.
A worker suffered a fractured leg after a bucket truck toppled in the 500 block of Woodland Avenue during a tree removal Thursday.
The worker was taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden.
Just after noon, the bucket truck fell to its side, trapping the crane operator inside the cab. He was removed by firefighters after power to nearby electrical wires was shut off.
The truck fell over because the tree it was being used to remove was heavier than expected, authorities said.
The workers are employees of Hyperion Tree Service of Moorestown.
