Abstract: At approximately 6:00 a.m. on May 5, 1991, Employee #1 parked his truck at a delivery dock and left the vehicle, intending to enter the building. The truck rolled off the employer-made elevator ramps, causing the engine to undergo a compression start. The vehicle drove away from the dock and traveled parallel to the side of the concrete building, catching Employee #1 between it and the side of the truck. He was rolled against the wall for approximately 20 ft, crushing his body from the hips up. The truck then drove out of the area and stalled on a hillside about 340 ft from the dock. Employee #1 was still alive when he was found. He was transported to Sacred Heart Hospital, where he died at 9:06 a.m. Subsequent investigation found the wheel ramps to be placed incorrectly. There were no witnesses to the accident.
