Crane will lift van off rock at Colorado Monument
GRAND JUNCTION, Colorado ” Colorado National Monument officials say they’ll use a crane to remove a van teetering on a rock outcropping at the Western Colorado landmark.
The 240-ton crane is expected to pluck the van off the rock on Thursday.
Authorities say a 34-year-old man drove the van about 120 feet off Rim Rock Drive in an apparent suicide attempt last week. He called 911 when the van got hung up on the rock.
It took two hours for emergency crews to stabilize the van and rescue the driver, whose name hasn’t been released.
