At about 6:20 p.m. on December 10, 2008, Employee #1, with a solid waste recycling business, was on a creeper repairing an air leak under the rear tag axle of a waste dump truck (Front Loader Truck Number 53190, License Plate 8C83378). As he opened a quick relief valve (VALVAC Inc., Model Number 032015), air pressure was released. This caused the axle to fall and crush his chest and abdomen. Employee #1 was transported to Menifee Valley Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
