Employee Is Killed When Struck By Flatbed Rail Car

At 4:40 p.m. on March 23, 2022, Employee #1 was a miner, whose job was to perfor m various maintenance throughout the tunnels and stations at an underground subw ay station under construction. Employee #1 was fatally injured in an accident wh ile installing steel water pipe in La Brea Station near a tunnel portal. On the afternoon of the accident, Employee #1 began his shift at approximately 2:00 p.m . and was assigned to install steel water pipe with another miner (a coworker). Sections of the steel pipe had been placed near installation points on previous shifts and the assigned task on this shift was to connect the pipe. For approxim ately two hours, Employee #1 and the coworker coupled sections of pipe together near the portal of the southern tunnel on the west side of La Brea Station. The nightshift locomotive operator stated that he looked along both sides of the lo comotive, did not see anyone in his path of travel, sounded the horn, then slowl y pushed the train toward the tunnel portal. The coworker turned his head and wa tched the flatcar run over Employee #1. The coworker immediately communicated t o the locomotive operator to stop the train, and the locomotive operator quickly responded. When the train completely stopped, the majority of Employee #1's bod y was under the flatcar and his face rested on the track. LAFD and LAPD responde d to the call and arrived at the accident scene. The night crew miners had raise d and blocked the front of the flatcar, which allowed LAFD to remove Employee #1 from underneath the flatcar. Employee #1 was pronounced dead at the scene.
