Summary Nr: 170183453Event: 11/18/1992Employee Injured In Tire Explosion
Employee #1, of David's Shell Station, was inflating a truck tire on a non-split type rim. A Coats 40-40A machine was being used and the tire was being inflated with a direct line hook-up at the machine. Employee #1 first checked the tire pressure with a hand-held gauge that showed 90 psi. The tire was then deflated because it was not seated. The second inflation resulted in a tire explosion, causing a compound fracture to Employee #1's left wrist and trauma to his head that rendered him unconscious.
