At approximately 2:15 p.m. on June 14, 2012, an employee was traveling down a steep hill hauling a load of 14 steel pipes (16-in. diameter, 60-ft long, and each weighing 3700 lbs). The employee suddenly slammed on brakes causing four of the six straps securing the load to break and the load to shift forward crushing the cab of the truck. The employee was crushed and killed.
