Queensland cattle grid accident worth $1.2 million

In April 2012, 40 year-old Petar Borkovic was on his way from the Ensham coal mine to NSW when he struck a cattle grid with a protruding length of steel.

Borkovic said the car bounced violently, which injured his back, and he then continued to drive to the Roma Hospital.
