STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - The owner of a New York marine construction firm and crane operator have been charged with reckless endangerment in connection with a crane collapse in Stamford Harbor.
The Advocate of Stamford reports that Nicholas Concavage, owner of Concavage Marine Contractors in Port Chester, N.Y., faces two misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment and a single charge of operating an unregistered crane.
Crane operator Richard Dufresne was charged with one count of reckless endangerment and operating a crane without a license.
A phone message at the company was not immediately returned Thursday morning. Dufresne does not have a listed number.
The arrest affidavits say the crane flipped over last May, glancing a sail boat and landing on a power boat. No one was hurt.
A state inspector determined the crane lacked several safety devices.
