TRUSSVILLE, Ala. (WBRC) - A scary moment in Trussville Tuesday afternoon when a boom truck tipped over while cutting a tree in the back yard of a residence.
An official with the Trussville Police Department says the incident happened around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday when a tree service boom truck hired by a resident in the 200 block of Lake Street tipped over while cutting a tree in the back yard.
