Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 94827.015Event: 04/18/2017Employee Is Electrocuted When Crane Contacts Overhead Power
At 10:00 a.m. on April 18, 2017, an employee was moving the Grove RT 880E Crane towards a construction site and passed under several overhead power lines. As the crane passed underneath the power lines, it came into contact with the third power line. The employee stopped and jumped from the cab with the fire extinguisher because the tires were on fire. The right front tire ruptured, causing the front outrigger pad to settle on the ground and energized the ground around it with 69K volts. The employee moved around the tire to put out the fire and was electrocuted when he stood on the energized ground.
