The crane was delivering a portable kitchen to the site of the open air cinema, Ciné du Lac.

The weight pulled over the truck leading to the fluids to escape.

The crane operator says he doesn’t know what happened. The firm’s owner says the driver was experienced and the truck fairly new.

Investigations are underway, but a mechanical failure to one of the struts supporting the vehicle is suspected.
