Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 82182.015Event: 01/11/2016Employee Struck And Killed By Garbage Truck
At 12:00 p.m. on January 11, 2016, a coworker had parked a garbage truck in the middle of the road between two residential houses and was handling garbage cans along with Employee #1 who was on the opposite side of the truck handling garbage cans/bins as well. The gear lever was set to neutral with the Neutral interlock rocker switch set to ON. The coworker (driver/operator) did not engage the parking brake. The vehicle began to roll downhill. So, Employee #1 and the coworker began to run after the vehicle. In the process, the coworker tripped and fell. Employee #1 ran further and was squeezed/pinned between the truck and a telephone pole and fell to the ground. A call was made to 911 by a resident and Employee #1 was immediately rushed to the hospital. Employee #1 died from multiple head injuries.
