At 12:15 p.m. on October 4, 1990, Employee #1, of Triangle Truck and Equipment Sales, was attempting to seat the beads of a 16 in. tire on a 16 1/2 in. light truck rim. One of the beads and the sidewall ruptured, and the wheel was violently propelled into Employee #1. He was knocked into the air and fell on his arms and back. He sustained serious facial cuts and acute strains of his wrists and neck. The accident was the result of installing a tire on a non-matching rim, lack of required training, and failure to check the tire and rim sizes.
