He was inside the prefabricated shop, installing lights and brake wiring on a flatbed trailer, when an unoccupied vehicle rolled down a hill and crashed into the building where he was working.

When the emergency vehicle arrived, Employee #1 was able to walk to the ambulance. He was taken to the local hospital, where he died four days later of cardiac or respiratory arrests.
