Vehicle Roll Over in Queensland

Graham Marshall - Thursday, January 17, 2013

The Safety Alert shown below highlights the dangers of pulling onto the soft shoulder of narrow rural  bitumen roads when allowing larger vehicles to pass.

In the recent incident in Queensland, two workers narrowly avoided serious injury or a fatality when they lost control of a vehicle, resulting in a high speed roll over.

The vehicle had been driven off the road to accommodate an oncoming truck on a narrow regional road.

The driver lost control of the vehicle on the unsealed road whilst attempting to return to the bitumen.

The Safety Alert illustrates a number of key learning points which are worth sharing with drivers exposed to rural road conditions.
