At approximately 11:30 a.m. on May 13, 2000, Employee #1 was working with a crew of approximately 15 men who were repaving a residential street with a diesel engine Dynapac pneumatic roller tire, CP 132, serial #21620241. He was the last person in the paving chain; first was the paving machine, second was the steel wheel roller, and third was the pneumatic roller. The roller came last, allowing the asphalt to cool. It kneaded the oil up to the surface, which actually sealed the top of the asphalt. For some reason, Employee #1 got off the roller and walked to the rear of the machine. The engine was still running, the forward/reverse lever was in reverse, and he emergency stop knob had not been engaged when the roller backed over Employee #1. The back wheels ran over Employee #1's feet first and the front wheels came to rest in the middle of his body, killing him. The roller stopped on its own.
