An operator was travelling outbye along a main travel road in a man transporter. Another machine had broken down on the main road and to the side of the roadway, a blue dropper was installed for the broken-down machine (this colour is not the mine standard for broken down machines). The operator ran into the stationary vehicle and some damage was done to both machines. No one was injured.
Recommendations to industry: Mine operators should review how machines parked in roadways are delineated, and their location should be communicated.
