On October 2, 1991, Employee #1, a 20-year road construction crew member and 34-year employee of Georgia-Pacific, was delivering 14 culvert pipes (18 in. diameter and 20 in. long) in a 10 yard dump truck to deliver to various locations in the woods. As he delivered one pipe, he lifted the front end of the pipe up and over the truck's side wall so it would roll off the truck; however, the pipe's rear end hung up on the truck's tailgate hinge. Employee #1 lifted the rear end and the front end dropped to the ground, causing the rear end to come up and knock him off the dump truck. Employee #1 fell about 4 ft to the ground and injured his back. A coworker transported him to the hospital, where he was X-rayed and put in a cast. He was released from the hospital the next day.
