Fatality on Ginninderra Drive

OzChick 16 March 2009 35

I just read on a forum that there has been a fatality on Ginninderra Drive.

Does anyone else have any further details about this incident?

UPDATED: The ABC explains as much as can be explained:

    Police say the man, aged in his 40s, has fallen from the truck he was driving and under the rear wheels.

    The truck continued down an embankment before stopping.

Road toll to two, still no involvement of alcohol or speed.

Sorry about your dad, but resurrecting an ancient thread with a barely literate comment is just opening yourself up to ridicule.

Hope you and your family are doing okay.

Adam, sorry for your loss.

My advice to you would be to ignore this thread and ask your friends to ignore it too. Otherwise it’ll just fuel a slanging match that won’t do your dad’s memory justice.

There’ll always be pedants or someone who wants to shoot off their mouth before they know the facts. Trust in the fact that there’ll be people here who will remind them that they are full of crap.

We could all sit here all day saying this is what happend or that, but at the end of the day we might just let the appropriate professionals investigate this unfortunate accident and see what conclusion it comes to

It is an unfortunate circumstance what happened but i think the trucks owner would not be or held accounted for following this freak accident, i think you just dont fall out of a truck going around a corner. Was he wearing a seatbelt? Cause I know that particular truck is factory fitted with a seat belt or could it have been a heart-attack.

Wouldn’t the seat belt prevent falling out?

Sounds mighty odd.. you would probably have to be doing a high speed to enable your body to move that far while going around a corner.

eah, I am. But I didn’t drive past the accident. I chucked a yewie (?) when I saw the traffic build up and cruised home via Giralang.

And I was joking 😉

Obviously that stretch of road needs a speed camera…

Thumper I don’t know if your a northsider or not, But there IS a speed camera at this intersection.

Do we say everyone who drives a car is bad at it when there is a fatal car accident? Often those who criticise truck drivers have VERY little knowledge of the skill it takes to drive such a large vehicle (particularly when sharing roads with car drivers who think that a truck can pull up as quickly as a car, or uses the same turning circle).

My condolences to the family.
