Employee #1 was traveling westbound in a company vehicle, a 1994 Blazer. He failed to observe a stop sign and drove into the side of a dump truck. He died of multiple injuries at the scene. The passengers in the dump truck, owned by H & S Construction, were not injured. The truck was pulling a 32 ft flatbed trailer loaded with a bulldozer. The stop sign was hidden by foliage from a distance; however, with the speed limit at 25 mph on that road, the employee should have had ample time to stop. According to an employee of GMAC, Employee #1 had been issued several traffic citations, including one for speeding.
