A commercial man lift falls off trailer and blocks Route 4 in Rangeley

Oct. 24—RANGELEY — A commercial man lift was being hauled Tuesday morning when the load shifted and it fell off a trailer at the intersection of state Route 4 and Dallas Hill Road.

No one was injured, Fire Rescue Chief Michael Bacon said.

A dump truck was hauling the lift and the chains broke that secured the lift to the trailer. The name of the driver and the company towing it was not immediately available Tuesday.

Firefighters cleared the road and cleaned up leaking hydraulic fluid.

M&H Construction and Koob's Garage, both of Rangeley, worked to put the lift upright on the road, Bacon said. Traffic was stalled for about 30 minutes.
