Chopper Slips On Wood Injuring Tailbone
Chip Truck Trailer Slipped Over Back-Stop
While dumping a load of chips, the back of the chip trailer slipped over the back-stop, damaging the bumper and back end of the trailer.
The probable cause is the driver failed to lower the airbags on the trailer, causing it to go over the back-stop.
Recommendations to Prevent a Recurrence
Ensure the air bags have been deflated and the chip trailer is tight to the back-stop.
