A boom truck overturned in Montreal, Canada, yesterday narrowly missing two trucks, thankfully no one was hurt in the incident.

The crane, owned by roofing company Couvreurs De l’Est, was placing roofing materials in the ‘Little Italy’ section of town, when for some reason the operator slewed over the short rigged side of the crane, causing it to overturn. 

Two mobile cranes were called in to help recover the stricken boom truck. SOURCE:
