Darryl Brown was working as truck driver for Smokey Coal mine in Grand Cache Alberta. He was required to drive over rough surfaces, sometimes almost falling out of his seat. In September 1988, Mr. Brown had a “runaway” incident. His truck brakes failed and the truck went down a 600 ft. ramp. He suddenly felt a “big snap” on the right side of his lower back when the truck crashed into the bottom of a second ramp. From this point forward, he started experiencing back problems.
