Crews Cleanup After Crane Topples

Last updated on Tuesday, September 13, 2011

(GARY) - Indiana State Police had to stop traffic on the Indiana toll road for much of the overnight hours while crews worked to pick up a 35-ton crane that toppled over in a westbound construction zone in Gary.

The crane was moving a load of steel rebar from a construction area when it toppled onto its side.

Troopers say the left lane in the construction zone was blocked off earlier so the crane could unload steel rebar off a semi-flatbed trailer into the construction area.
