Self propelled crane accident
Post Mortem
the structure collapsed during assemby
Explanation:
Example: "Forces during assembly

The structure has to be built and assembled. This may require as much ingenuity as the design of the bridge itself. It will also require special equipment. While the bridge is incomplete it may be vulnerable to oscillation or deflection in ways which would not be possible after its completion. The Pont de Normandie is a good example. A number of box-girder bridges collapsed during construction until the stresses were well understood. This type of event is sometimes the price of innovation by extrapolation."
