Crane Truck Accident on Baldwin Street Reported

June 09, 2022

GEORGIA - An accident news story published on states that an accident involving a crane truck shut down a portion of Baldwin Street.*

The report states that the crane truck hit a steel beam underneath a train trestle by a University of Georgia worksite close to East Campus Road. Officials with the University of Georgia stated that the crane truck accident was not related to any construction project.

According to the University, it has been working on design and engineering upgrades to the parking lot as well as the train trestle that is parallel to East Campus Road. While during the construction, a crane truck being used for an unrelated project was heading eastbound on Baldwin Street and collided with a steel beam underneath the train trestle. The damage to the train trestle required the closure of Baldwin Street until additional safety inspections may be completed.

A third-party engineer assessed the damage and advised that the area be closed to avoid vehicles from being struck by falling debris. The road under the trestle remains closed to traffic at this time. New overhead protection will be constructed to provide safe access to cyclists and pedestrians as soon as possible.
