Wind turbine crashes to ground  

Credit:  www.wytv.com ~~

A wind turbine came crashing down near Western Reserve High School in Berlin Center on Sunday.

The piece of the turbine that fell was one of three installed at the school back in 2009. The company that makes the equipment is out of Scotland, they work with an Indiana company.

The turbines supply about 40-percent of the school’s electricity.

No official word on what caused the turbine to fall. However, officials say it may have been the result of fatigued bolts.

A crew out of North Jackson climbed the other two towers to make sure there were no structural problems with either of them.

The area’s been taped off. No one was hurt.
