The contract start date was March 1, 2012. The day of the accident, Employee #1 had pulled up beside another coworker (crew leader) and told him that he was going to be right back and that he had to blow the fuel filter out. Employee #1 got on the road traveling North with the wings to the tractor in an up position. A witness stated the next thing he knew someone had driven up to him and told him that the guy running the big orange tractor had been hit by a car. According to the witness statement given to Florida Highway Patrol, Employee #1 departed the outside shoulder of State Road 5 to avoid a culvert and entered the outside lane of State Road 5 in front of a vehicle traveling in the outside lane.
