Truck rollover on Bowen Basin mine

Emergency services have been called to Cockatoo Coal's Baralaba coal mine in the Bowen Basin after a truck rollover.

The Morning Bulletin reports the truck is believed to have fallen on its side.

Cockatoo Coal was unavailable for comment this morning.

The incident is the latest in a spate of accidents in the mining industry, including the death of a Queensland quarry worker over the weekend.

On Friday a man severed his leg and suffered serious spinal injury after falling down a mine shaft at Perilya's Broken Hill site in New South Wales.
