A crane moving trees from the back garden of a home to the front of the house
fell nearly splitting it in two on Thursday afternoon.

The crane was lifting trees cut by a tree company over the home, at about
4:15 p.m.

One of the truck’s four outriggers, used to stabilize the truck, was placed
on the septic tank, according to Blue Ridge Fire and Rescue, which responded to
the incident.

The ground gave way and the crane tipped over. The septic tank was cracked.

No one was home at the time and no one was injured.
