At 10:30 p.m. on July 30, 2016, a golf course employee was driving a John Deere riding lawn mower, model X585, down a 25 degree embankment while traveling to an area to be mowed. The employee was working by himself and this was a normal task for him to do. The embankment had a little bit early morning dew on it due to it being 10:30 in the morning. As he was driving down the embankment at a slight angle the mower started to slip on the wet grass. This caused the mower to slide sideways down the embankment and tip over sideways. The mower ended up on top of the employee. The was killed due to crushing thoracic injuries.
