Employees #1 and #2, who were between the vacuum truck and the discharge point, were struck. Employee #1 died of oil inhalation and pulmonary edema. Employee #2 suffered oil inhalation and broken bones, lacerations, and cuts. Inadequate work practices and inadequate purging design caused this accident.
