Lift Crashes Near Brattle

A large construction vehicle toppled over and crashed into the small parking lot near to the Brattle Book Shop on West Street in Boston this morning, wreaking havoc on the shop's bargain shelves/carts and injuring two construction workers, one of whom fell from the bucket as the vehicle went down.

[Sad update: News this morning that one of the crane operators, James Williamson, succumbed to his injuries last night, and died around 8:15 p.m. The other man, Greg Johnson, remains in the hospital.]
