Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14349617Event: 06/07/1994Employee Crushed And Killed By Excavator Boom
At approximately 9:15 a.m. on June 7, 1994, Employee #1, a foreman on a earthmoving construction site, climbed on a trackhoe excavator to determine why the throttle linkage was stuck in the engine rev-up position. He removed the bolts that secured the cover to the control panel for the throttle and bucket boom control stick. When Employee #1, who was positioned between the boom and cab of the excavator, raised the control panel cover, the boom control stick was forced forward. The boom lowered, crushing Employee #1 between the boom's hydraulic cylinder and the cab post. Employee #1 was pronounced dead at the scene from a massive crushing injury to the chest and abdomen.
