Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 75690.015Event: 04/11/2015Employee Struck By Broken Tow Chain And Is Killed
At approximately 9:00 a.m. on April 11, 2015, an employee was towing a stranded 2003 Kenworth Concrete Mixer Truck, VIN# 1NKWL0EX73J893708, using a Caterpillar CAT 928H Front End Loader. The employee attached a 2-foot section of .5 diameter chain fed through the tow coupler and looped against itself to the stranded truck. After 45 minutes of towing, the tow chain broke sending the D-ring and tow rope flying towards the loader. The D-ring of the tow rope struck the 6-inch round exhaust pipe of the CAT 928H loader deflecting it toward the employees cab. The D-ring broke through the rear window, struck the employee in the back of the head, and punched through their head and the windshield before finally coming to rest near the bucket of the loader. The employee was pronounced dead on scene by responding emergency personnel.
