Rear-Dumper Down Spoil Face

An amazing photo, with an equally amazing story. This incident happened in about 1997, in a mine in WA. The truck tipped over on the face, and slid 100m down the face to the floor. When it hit the floor, the truck flipped back onto its wheels.

The operator escaped with only slight cuts and some bruising.
