Abstract: At approximately 9:45 p.m. on November 16, 2006, Employee #1 was working as an independent truck driver contracted by Werner Enterprises Inc. He was standing between a parked trailer and the trailer of a truck and trailer combination that was getting ready to leave. The driver of the truck performed a push and pull test to check the coupler connection to the trailer. As part of the test, the truck driver backed the truck, but he had not set the brakes on the trailer, which was a necessary part of the test. Employee #1 was killed when he was struck by the backing trailer and crushed between the two trailers.
