    Bike yikes. Reminds me of that guy in the oilfield who got crushed to death when an excivator knocked a boulder off and trapped him between his truck and the rock about 8 years back.
     
    Oxbow Thanks this.

    If you get the chance. Best place to be when #### goes south is under that truck.

    That's a shame. Normally that happens when a guy has too high of a bench and has to get too close to the edge to reach the trucks. This wasn't the case here and he had his stick curled in, so my best guess is that he was backing up and forgot that slope was behind him.

    Dang shame.
     
    Catmando and mjd4277 Thank this.
