As the transporter slowed, it hit a fire hydrant dropper that penetrated the driver’s side windscreen.

The personnel transporter was travelling outbye with two occupants in an underground New South Wales coal mine.

As it left a dogleg section of the roadway, the steering pulled hard to the right.
