On October 16, 2006, Employee #1 was working as a heavy equipment mechanic for an automotive repair shop. He had just serviced a dump truck. He asked the driver to back the truck from the fuel island into a parking spot and told the driver he would stand clear while that was done. The driver checked his mirrors and saw that Employee #1 was in the clear, so he backed up. For some reason, Employee #1 walked into the path of the backing truck. He was struck in the chest and killed, due to an unspecified injury.
