At approximately 1:00 p.m. on June 9, 1989, Employee #1 was finishing a pot hole repair job in the right hand lane at the bottom of a slight incline. The road surface was slick due to rain. The repair job had been completed and Employee #1 was placing his shovel in the rear of the Power-Ray, an 8 ft trailer filled with asphalt, when he was struck by an out-of-control sanitation truck. The sanitation truck was braking for a traffic light when it skidded and hit Employee #1, pinning him between the truck and the Power-Ray. He was taken to the hospital, where he died of complications at 11:30 p.m. Two employees and one foreman were on the job with Employee #1, but were able to get out of the way of the skidding truck.
