Worker run over by own ride after rooftop roll

A 34-year-old is nursing a broken leg after tumbling off the roof of a company truck, before being run over by the same vehicle.

Police said the man, who works for an animal feed company, was one of a number riding outside the vehicle, when the driver was forced to stop short to avoid low-hanging electrical wires.

The momentum pitched the employee, who had been sitting atop the cab, in front of the still-rolling truck. The man was sent to hospital and the driver was questioned, but all agreed it was an accident. NOKORWAT
