Abstract: At approximately 5:10 p.m. on September 2, 2008, Employee #1 parked a 1945 Chevrolet dump truck in the driveway of a storage warehouse. The driveway was slightly inclined. He engaged the hand break and the transmission (in 2nd gear) and got off the vehicle. The vehicle started to move forward and he jumped back onto the running board, opened the door and attempted to get into the cab to step on the brake. The truck kept moving forward and crashed into the roll-up door of the warehouse. The warehouse doorframe hit the open truck door and pushed it back and it hit the employee, standing on the running board. Employee #1 sustained serious injuries to his ribs and lungs and was hospitalized.
