Truck rollover during tipping
As a subcontractor was delivering a truck and trailer load of rock to a site, he tipped the load and jack-knifed the trailer to tip the truck at the edge of a drop-off. The driver then engaged the power TA to lift the truck hoist, while also engaging the clutch. As he released the clutch, the truck jerked and jumped backwards, resulting in him losing control and traction.
The driver removed his seatbelt and jumped clear as the truck rolled backwards over the face.
