This water truck was involved in an accident. The driver had only been on the job for a few weeks. This very inexperienced driver lost control and the truck flipped over. Many times the least experienced operators are assigned to some of the oldest equipment at the mine, some of the hardest equipment to handle. This is something that should be considered. Many times water trucks are overloaded. The truck may not have been designed to haul as much weight as the water tank can hold. The mine operator needs to make sure that the weight of the water does not exceed the capacity of the truck.
