It’s always sad to see an exotic car crash. This Jaguar XKR met an untimely end recently after falling victim to a crane fall. The XKR was one of two cars damaged, the other being a BMW 630, when the crane fell onto the parking lot at B & D Automobiles.
The crane was being used to lift a fuel tank for a new petrol station being constructed along the road, Brugsesteenweg in Gits, Belgium. Ground subsidence caused two of the crane’s supporting legs to sink into the soil. The company building the petrol station will have to sent the fuel tank back off to the manufacturer to ensure no damage has been caused.
