At approximately 3:22 p.m. on November, 24, 2003, Employee #1, a foreman, was assisting a backhoe operator of a John Deere 410E Backhoe, loading pipes onto a flatbed truck, while on a hill. The backhoe was located further up the hill from the truck. On the first attempt to place the pipes on the bucket of the backhoe, the backhoe operator extended the boom toward the truck's bed, but it did not reach. The backhoe operator then lowered the bucket and attempted to reposition the backhoe closer to the truck when the backhoe slid down the hill striking Employee #1. Employee #1 sustained serious leg and tailbone injuries. Employee #1 was hospitalized and treated for his injuries. It was determined that the accident occurred as result of the backhoe not being stable on the hill by effective mechanical means.
