At approximately 3:07 p.m. on May 1, 2000, Employee #1, a foreman, was part of a crew that was installing 10 ft long by 16 in. diameter sections of underground pipes for reclaimed water at the inner westbound lane of a roadway. At approximately 9:15 a.m. on April 11, 2000, he and two coworkers were removing the traffic control cones and a sign board before quitting time. Employee #1 and a coworker were hitching the RIGHT LANE CLOSED AHEAD arrow signal board to the back of the foreman's pickup truck when a Blazer SUV traveling 50 mph drove through the cone barricades and slammed into the arrow board. Employee #1 was thrown to the sidewalk and suffered a fractured left leg and fractures to both arms. He was transported by ambulance to Mercy Hospital, where he underwent surgery and was still on a ventilator 12 days after the accident. Apparently, the driver of the SUV fell asleep and lost control of his vehicle.
