February 5th, 2010

Hod Hasharon, Israel. A tower crane collapsed today killing a tractor driver on the job site and critically injuring the crane operator. It's been reported that the weather bad but I am unable to find anything that mentions how fast the winds are blowing.

The crane had fallen down across the main highway out front and across some shops that seem to have withstood the weight of the crane landing on them. The crane was removed within hours. It's already been determined that the crane collapsed from it's base, but little details beyond that statement have been made clear.
