The employee picked up a piece of angle iron approximately 6 inches by 4.5 inches by 50 inches long.

While he was walking to the fabrication area, a CAT 966M front-end loader, being operated by a coworker, was traveling from the raw recycled asphalt stockpile to the finish stockpile.

As the loader approached the clean finished stockpile, the coworker felt the loader move strangely.
