At approximately 8:00 p.m. on August 9, 1997, Employee #1, of Joe Hendrick Enterprises, was returning from a sunflower field he had been discing to refuel his small Ford 2000 low-profile diesel tractor. He pulled into the service yard and drove next to the fuel wagon. Employee #1 was starting to dismount when he accidentally released the clutch, causing the tractor to jump forward.

The disc was raised but he suffered internal injuries, including a severe liver contusion; he was transported to Woodland Memorial Hospital for treatment. Employee #1 did not shut off the engine or set the emergency brake before attempting to get off the tractor. He also shifted incorrectly, leaving the vehicle in gear.
