At 8:00 a.m. on September 9, 2020, an employee was replacing a 12 Volt automotiv e battery in a Maxi-Load 108, 12-foot truck scale. A coworker was loading timber onto a 1997 Plantation Log trailer, towed by a 1998 Freightliner tractor truck. The truck and trailer were backed onto the scale to be loaded. Once the trailer was loaded, the coworker informed the truck driver that his trailer was loaded and he could proceed off the scales to a flat spot to secure his load. As the dr iver pulled off the scales, he felt a bump, and called back to coworker and aske d what he had just run over. At that time, the coworker swung his Barko Loader 1 80 degrees to face the trailer, and observed the employee lying on the ground un der the rear wheels of the Freightliner tractor. The Freightliner had to be lift ed off the ground with a hydraulic crane loader in order to retrieve the employe e from between the drive wheels. The employee was pronounced dead at the scene o f internal body injuries.
