Only a couple of meters before an apartment in Taunusstein (Rheingau-Taunus), a construction crane tipped over at 8 a.m. on Wednesday morning and thumped into the ground. The 60-year-old crane driver, who was sitting in the crane driver’s lodge at the time of the incident, was slightly harmed in the accident.

Two cars and a bike were damaged. The crane and the asphalt of the parking area were likewise badly affected. The police estimate the damage to be a few hundred thousand euros. The crane had been set up on the construction site for a new apartment building.
