Crane Incident- Contact with Power Lines
Crane contacts overhead power line during freeway construction
46,000 volts travel through the crane and beneath the concrete road
Eyewitness: "In a split second the whole crane, cab, everything exploded in flames."
Fire Chief: "Electricity will find its path, and if you're in that path, it will injure you."
Hydraulic fluid and underground insulation become fuel for the flames.
Slabs of concrete are lifted in the air.
Debris rains down through the smoke and fire.
The roadbed becomes fully engulfed.
Fortunately, the crane operator escapes with only minor injuries.
