At approximately 3:50 p.m. on November 21, 2018, an employee was at the site in the yard waiting to get paid for the paint job. Another employee was hooking up a semi-truck tractor for towing the rear hitch of another semi-truck tractor. The employee used a forklift to lift the front end of semi-truck tractor and was towing a semi-tractor. The front end of truck-tractor being towed was not securely hooked into the rear hitch of front truck because it was not yet secured with the chain. The tractor being towed slid backwards partially off the hitch and crushed the employee, who was pronounced dead at the site.
