Truck on the edge: The road would be a better option

THE day went a little askew for the driver of a truck at Woombye yesterday.

The truck rolled from its parking spot and went nose first over a ledge on to a Blackall St footpath about 9.30am.

The driver had been making a delivery to Kustom Paint when the truck rolled.

Kustom sales rep Ryan Corner said the driver maintained he had left the handbrake on.

Mr Corner said the driver tried to stop the vehicle from rolling when it began to move.

"The guy's got out and opened the back doors and it's started rolling," Mr Corner said.

"He and one of my co-workers tried to hold it but there was no stopping it."

Motorists slowed to get a look at the unusual sight.

A tow truck eventually hauled the vehicle back to the carpark while a crane held the front to protect the under-carriage from any further damage, although Mr Corner said the truck appeared to have survived the trip fairly well.
