Fatality involving an articulated dump truck

What happened?

On Sunday 29 July the operator of an articulated dump truck was working at a quarry with his last load of the day. Moving fully loaded down the access ramp, it appears he lost control of the vehicle. At the bottom of the ramp the vehicle overturned (see photo), partially pinning the operator under the cab. He later succumbed to his injuries.

How did it happen?

The incident is still under investigation.
