Employee #1 was helping to move and place loaded railway boxcars. At the time of the accident, he was waiting in a 30 in. by 48 in. offset cavity of the loading dock for the last boxcar to pass before disconnecting the train engine from the boxcars. Apparently Employee #1 became caught by an appendage on a railway boxcar and he was pulled 26 ft along an 8.5 in. opening between the moving boxcar and the loading dock. He rotated at least three times, sustaining a crushed pelvis and abdomen. Employee #1 was pronounced dead at the scene by the local medical examiner's office.
