On November 22, 2006, several employees were working at a site where concrete was being poured. Four employees were injured when an empty cement mixer skidded on a mud covered blacktop driveway, and struck and pushed a parked utility truck. Three employees had been standing behind the utility truck, in the path of the sliding cement mixer. One employee was inside the body of the truck. Employee #1 was standing behind the utility truck and was injured when he was struck by the cement mixer. He was hospitalized for a fractured leg and tail bone, cuts and bruises. The other employees standing behind the utility truck were hospitalized for strained backs and one had nerve damage to an arm and leg. The employee inside the rear of the utility truck was hospitalized for back injuries. He was injured when he pulled the other two employees out of the way, which prevented them from being struck and pinned between the vehicles.
