On October 14, 2008, a truck driver and two other workers were assigned by a supervisor to take a truck load of miscellaneous furniture and items to a dump site in Oxnard. After arriving at the dump site, which is an enclosed facility, the two helpers began unloading the items from the truck, which is a 24-ft enclosed box truck with a lift gate. The truck driver was standing on the lift gate and was pulling a piece of furniture out of the truck, when for an unknown reason fell off the lift gate onto the concrete floor. The lift gate was measured at 4 ft 1 in. above the ground. The injured employee landed on his side and hit his head. He suffered blood clots on his brain and an injury to his left collarbone. He was transported by ambulance to St. John's Hospital, Oxnard, where he was hospitalized for four days.
