Employee #1 was attempting to replace the front right side leg/spring on a model R-600 Mack dump truck. He placed a railroad jack under the front crossbeam of the truck's frame. After Employee #1 removed the bolts and pins, the truck shifted on the jack, fell to the right, and detached from the jack. Although a coworker tried to alert Employee #1 that the truck was falling, Employee #1's upper body and torso were pinned beneath the side-mounted fuel tank and the ground. He was dead on arrival at the local hospital.
