At 1:00 p.m. on February 8, 2021, an employee was working as a truck driver for a local general freight trucking company. He drove heavy trucks. He exited the c ab of his dump truck and proceeded between his truck and an adjacent dump truck to relieve himself. He and two coworkers were parked perpendicular to a salt pil e, waiting for the salt to be loaded onto their trucks. A portion of the salt pi le collapsed. The collapsing salt pushed the first dump truck into the second (m iddle) dump truck, which in turn was pushed into the third dump truck. The emplo yee, who was the driver of the third dump truck and was between the second and t hird trucks, was crushed between the two dump trucks. He suffered multiple traum atic injuries. He was killed.
