    Manufacturer of bridge crane in bankruptcy - Toledo Blade, OH
    The following July, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration said the accident most likely was caused by Fru-Con's failure to follow the crane manufacturer's instructions for securing the cranes' legs during operation.

    In the lawsuit, which is pending in U.S. District Court in Toledo, Fru-Con faulted the manufacturer for the cranes' 'inability to accommodate the horizontal radius, or 'curve,' in the bridge,' and 'incomplete welds,' and said 'numerous field corrections' were required on the equipment. The second crane has been returned to service.
