Employee #1 was changing a clutch assembly in a Freightliner truck. While the clutch assembly was being unbolted from the flywheel of the engine, the weight of the transmission and clutch assembly snapped a mount off of the pressure plate. The back end of the transmission fell on the employee, struck him in the head and face, and came to rest on his chest. The one remaining bolt held the front of the transmission up. The employee was hospitalized with his injuries.
