At approximately 7:40 a.m. on July 30, 2012, Employee #1, a 52-year-old male with Brinks Usa Dba A Division of Brinks Incorporated, was working with two coworkers and one supervisor to pick up and deliver bills and coins to different businesses. A coworker was backing an armored truck inside the loading area of an enclosed building with the other coworker standing outside the truck, using hand signals to direct the truck. A second armored truck was stationary with its front end facing towards the same direction as the armored truck was being backed up with Employee #1 positioned between the two trucks. The driver backing up the truck caught Employee #1 between the back bumper of his armored truck and the front bumper of the stationary armored truck.
