At approximately 12:00 pm, on August 1, 2011 Employee #1 of JFC Construction, Inc., was driving an aerial device (Genie s-85) slowly down a steep (13.2 degrees), part of a private asphalt road. He felt he was sliding toward the left side of the road and going too fast, so he steered the unit toward a hill embankment as he prepared to jump off. The unit hit the embankment and turned 180-degree over. Employee #1 was trapped between the boom and the body of the unit. As a result, Employee #1 sustained fractures to three ribs, spinal column and skull and concussions. Employee #1 was helped by Employee #2 who was about 10 feet behind him in a truck (Peterbuilt). He called the ER for assistance.
