Two seperate Construction Truck Accidents lead to mayhem in Miami-Dade County: A local Fire Rescue spokesperson reported that a severely injured construction worker had to be airlifted to a nearby medical facility to receive emergency care for the injuries he suffered as a result by a boom lift that tipped over while operating at a Homestead shopping center. The worker, whose identity and condition is unknown, was badly hurt when the boom lift, or bucket truck, came crashing down on its side for reasons that are still unknown. This incident is just one of two that took place this past Thursday involving elevation construction vehicles, with both construction vehicles accidents leading to mayhem in Miami. The second incident occurred on Thursday evening in west Miami, when another crane started to rotate out of control and began taking down power lines. According to eyewitness reports, there was panic among the pedestrians and motorists that noticed the live power cables sparking and dangling overhead. Fortunately, there were no reported injuries but it has yet to be determined if any property owners, residents, or local businesses suffered losses due to the power outage, which took several hours to be restored. Apparently, the crane suffered a systems failure, a fact that insurance investigators and the attorneys representing property damage claims (if any) must verify to determine if there was negligence on behalf of the crane operator, the vehicle owner, lesser, construction firm, or any other third party involvement.
