Santa Rosa Crane Crashes into House

As the cranes work above the buildings on Esplanade Ave in Pacifica, I remembered the recent crane accident in Santa Rosa.

Workers attempt to remove a 100,000-pound crane, that fell into a Santa Rosa home on Molly Court, on Tuesday, November 17, 2009. The crane sliced into Michelle and Kevin McCarthy’s Santa Rosa home yesterday while trying to remove a 150-year-old tree.
