Employee #1 was riding in a personnel carrier attached to an aerial boom that was extended 85 ft. He was at a height of 50 ft inspecting structural members of an elevated section of Interstate 20 when apparently the outriggers suddenly shifted. This caused the platform to tilt and caused the extended boom and carrier to arc toward a bridge support column. Employee #1's head struck against the column, and he was killed.
