At approximately 3:00 p.m. on March 16, 2001, Employee #1, a hooktender, was walking out of the logging unit at the end of the work day. He walked out of the unit in close proximity to the haulback line. When another employee, a yard engineer, brought the last stack of logs in the haulback line, it apparently struck Employee #1 in the face, causing multiple abrasions and a fractured nose. He was transported by crew members to the local hospital for medical treatment. Subsequently, he was transferred to another hospital for additional medical treatment by a specialist.
