My dad called me yesterday to inform me that a guy I knew as a kid in my hometown was running a 312 on Friday of last week on some steep ground and rolled it over backwards resulting in his death. Really sucks as I've known the guy for a while, my little sister is friends with his daughter as well. Stay safe guys, this was a Friday afternoon accident, chances are they were running behind and got in a hurry. He was not ejected from the machine, he had the seatbelt on and I'm hearing that a piece of glass, probably the front glass, fell on him and that's what caused his injuries. Had the glass not fallen he would probably still be alive, I'm told the cab of the machine held up very well as the boom took the brunt of the landing. Thought I'd post this as a safety reminder. Sometimes I've done some things on slopes I probably shouldn't do to get the job done, but after losing someone I know to a rollover I'll definately re-think my strategies. Steep slope work is incredibly prevelant back home, there isn't hardly a site that's flat and it's only getting worse with the way the topography of the valley runs.
