On November 5, 2013, Employee #1, with Reno Forklift, was loading a powered industrial truck (Drexel; Model Number: SLT 30) onto a flatbed retractable bed tow truck. After driving the powered industrial truck (PIT) onto the tilted bed of the tow truck, Employee #1 connected the winch cable to the PIT and returned the bed to the level position. The PIT then began rolling toward the cab. The steering tire was on an angle that caused the truck to travel toward the passenger side edge of bed of the tow truck. Employee #1 was at the controls on the driver side. Employee #1 stopped the controls and ran around to the passenger side just as the PIT rolled off the side. Employee #1 was crushed and killed by the PIT, when it fell off the bed.
