Subject: High diving Mack
When they say they breed them tough in the Pilbara, they're not joking. This truckie was carrying a 28 tonne load of concrete to be loaded on a ship bound for an offshore oil rig. He lost his brakes at the top of the hill leading to the wharf and had a choice to make - hit a massive crane which would have sardine canned his truck and him in it, or avoid the crane and run the gauntlet down the wharf to ditch in the ocean (missing the ship tied up and countless other objects). The triangle shaped object at the end of the wharf is one of two massive sand anchors waiting to be loaded onto a ship. He hit one of these and send it catapulting through the air. That hit a car and sent that flying into the water. He hit the second anchor which was dragged down the wharf and eventually wedged between the truck wheels and the ridge on the edge of the wharf, doing the job as an anchor. Notice the small brown box shaped container on the wharf? That is a small 'hut' that a wharfie was sleeping in between shifts. He awoke to see an anchor flying through the air. As you can see, the cab door of the truck is open because the driver launched himself into the water as his cab was heading over the edge. Amazingly, no one was injured in this accident, except for some bruising and heaps of barnacle cuts the truckie sustained trying to climb back up the wharf ladder.
