Overturned Crane Hangs Off South Jersey Road

A crane slipped off a South Jersey roadway Wednesday morning and started to tip over as its wheels sunk into the muddy embankment.

The crane veered slightly off Malaga Road around 8:30 a.m., according to police.

Luckily no one was hurt.

The accident scene is on the the border of Winslow Township, Camden County and Monroe Township, Gloucester County.

Crews are bringing additional cranes to the South Jersey roadway to upright the flipped crane, according to police.

Expect Malaga Road, a two-lane street, to be closed for several hours in both directions, officials said.

It remained closed as of 4 p.m.
