Dump truck slides in slippery conditions [video]

With the increased focus on safety for heavy vehicles, here's a video to remind you it's not just in-cab distractions which can cause an accident.

Weather and road conditions can also create hazardous working environments for operators.

In the video a loaded dump truck driving along in wet and foggy conditions slides out around a corner.

The driver manages to bring the vehicle back under control but not before spinning 180 degrees.

After the incident, a person in the light vehicle calls for the trucks to be parked up saying it's too slippery.
