At 12:45 p.m. on November 30, 2018, Employee #1 and a coworker were given instru ction to winterize the cabins throughout the facility. The employees needed to b ack up into a driveway in the middle of the street to drive in the forward direc tion down the hill without wearing their seatbelts. They were driving down an a pproximately 7 degree hill that was wet and covered with leaves while trying to turn with the road that went slightly left while applying the brakes. As the co worker applied the brakes, the truck skidded approximately 25 feet towards a cli ff that was approximately a 25 foot drop. It appeared that the truck was not goi ng to turn in the direction away from the cliff and both employees decided it wa s best to jump out of the moving vehicle while it was going approximately 3 MPH and exited the vehicle out of their perspective doors. The coworker cleared the vehicle. Employee #1 initially cleared the vehicle, but when the coworker let go of the steering wheel, the truck straightened out and went with the road, veeri ng to the right and running over Employee #1's leg, fracturing the femur. Emplo yee #1 was hospitalized for two days.
