At 6:55 a.m. on June 7, 2019, Employees #1, #2, and #3, employed by a utility services company, drove in two utility pickup trucks to their starting work location, a two-lane rural road with no shoulder. They parked their trucks in the northbound lane, resulting in 75 percent of the 8-foot wide lane being blocked. They then began to unload tools and equipment they would use to inspect and treat wooden power poles located on the opposite side of the road. Each truck was equipped with a single rotating orange light and vertical flagger flags on the back. As the three employees unloaded tools from the rearmost truck, an oncoming pickup truck traveling north struck the employees and the driver-side rear corner of the utility truck. Employee #1 was thrown across the roadway to the opposite ditch and killed. Employee #2 required hospitalization and treatment for fracture injuries to the head. Employee #3 required hospitalization and treatment for a fractured left hand. As a result of his injury, a finger was amputated.
