At 9:00 a.m. on March 24, 2020, Employee #1 and some Coworkers, boring operators (crew), were running wire inside of drill stems, while installing a power trans mission line and as his coworkers stopped to clean the mud pit, Employee #1 then placed a pipe tong on a stem. After the mud pit was cleaned, Coworker #1, a fo reman, instructed the boring operator to initiate boring; however, the area surr ounding the pipe stems was not cleared and as result, Employee #1 was struck in the back of the head by the pipe tong attached to the stem. Afterwards, Employee #1 sustained blunt force trauma to the head and was then transported to the hos pital and later pronounced dead.
