Employee #1 was operating a truck crane that was set up along a bank without outriggers, matting, or consideration of the eroding soil. The presence of six manholes in the immediate area of the ravine indicates that the underlying soil was unstable. Employee #1 was thrown from the cab of the truck crane when it overturned while it was on the bank of the ravine. His back was fractured and he was hospitalized. The site was a soil erosion project needed in order to secure the state's roadway, which runs along the edge of the ravine, from collapse. As of this writing, the case has been heard by an A.L.J., with an adverse ruling being rendered regarding the alleged unsafe and willfully employed crane setup.
