At 1:40 p.m. on May 8, 2017, an employee was operating a Caterpillar skid steer with a boom mower attachment on the front of it. As the employee used the equipment to mow weeds along a berm, he misjudged the landscape and inadvertently backed the skid steer off of the hill. The skid steer rolled end over end down the hill and came to rest against a tree that was approximately 70 feet down the hill. The employee sustained multiple fractures, as well as the amputation of his right leg just below the knee.
