How is it 'near' fatal when he get's up and walks away? Near injurious maybe.

I disagree. If the steering column had hit his head, he most likely wouldn't be on this earth any more. Several hundred pounds landing on your head generally equals dead.

I used to know a guy who rolled an ATV pretty much the same way. He died when the machine landed on him.

Too many people equate not hurt with not dangerous.

I ran a heavy truck and machine shop for ten years. When you are responsible for ensuring 32 men go home to their wives, children and parents as good as they showed up that day, it gives you a completely different outlook. When you hear the fear in a mothers voice when she sees the boss' number come up and you tell her you are at the emergency room with her son and you can't tell her quickly enough that it's a dislocated finger, you definitely gain a new perspective.

I think the lesson here is that it never hurts to back up the steep grades.

Not just a lesson but a warning..They are out there and they are breeding!

Have tipped some off of trailer ramps, but never rolled over or big fall. Goes fast!   I was amazed the engine stayed running and didn't blow a rod or oil spill or such! How does that work when should be splash oilers in it?  Next newest safety invention will be a tie string to a dead-man switch to put on arm, in case you fall off. Will be required by local shows.....yep........just wait!
