Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 94653.015Event: 04/10/2017Employee Is Killed When Caught Between Semi-Truck And Shippi
At approximately 12:28 p.m. on April 10, 2017, a truck driver arrived at PEER 48 to deliver a container in the yard. The yard had a stable gravel surface and it was packed from vehicular traffic driving over it. The surface of the ground was mostly flat and did not have any inclines or large potholes that were noted. The employee pulled in and lined the container up for unloading, and quickly exited the vehicle. He approached the trailer operator's station and began to lower the container. The camera footage obtained from PEER 48 showed that as the container was being lowered, the truck was moving forward. After the container was flat on the ground, the employee quickly entered the area between the trailer and the truck to disconnect the cable that attached the two. The employee disconnected and stowed the cable and, for reasons unknown, remained in the area. Very shortly afterwards, the truck and trailer rolled backwards pinning the employee between the container and the trailer. The employee was crushed and killed.
