WINFIELD, Pa. — Officials are trying to determine why a large crane toppled about 100 feet off a small bridge on Mushroom Farm Road with the craneman inside.
The crane operator was part of a Russell Standard Co. work crew that's refurbishing the 36-year-old bridge when the mishap occurred just before 1 p.m. Monday.
