85-Foot Crane Falls Onto Home in Tinton Falls

A crane fell onto a house in Tinton Falls late this morning, according to authorities.

The 85-foot-tall crane was being used for tree removal services around 11 am when it toppled over and fell onto the home on Surrey Lane. The homeowner was said to be home at the time of the incident, but was reportedly unharmed. No other injuries have been reported.

According to witnesses at the scene, the cab of the crane became unstable, as the wheels lifted off the ground and sent the boom falling toward the ground.

It is uncertain at this time how the machinery toppled over.

A towing company has been dispatched to remove the crane from atop the residence.
