Soldier killed in vehicle roll-over at army base.
NIOSH 1995 Aug; :1-3
A U.S. Army mechanic was killed on March 12, 1995, when the military truck he was driving skidded and rolled over. A passenger in the truck received minor injuries. The truck was a 5-ton cargo vehicle carrying ammunition and other explosives. The driver lost control on a curve in a steep downward grade. Braking resulted in the truck skidding, and a trailer that was being towed by the vehicle "catapulted" off the ground. This resulted in a roll-over that pinned the driver partially outside the truck's front windshield. 1. All motor vehicle operators should wear seatbelts at all times. 2. All motor vehicle drivers must have training appropriate for the environment in which they will be operating. 3. All motor vehicles should be carefully inspected by drivers prior to operation.
