Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 105984.015Event: 05/29/2018Tow Truck Operator Killed When Suv Strikes School Bus
At 10:11 a.m. on May 29, 2018, an employee was working as a tow truck operator for a firm that engaged in towing motor vehicles, or vehicle recovery. The employee responded to a call that involved a school bus with dual rear tires and one of the tires had a flat on the passenger side. The employee positioned his tow truck, or wrecker, in front of the bus. He was lying on the ground just in front of the bus trying to see what equipment he would need to pick up and tow the bus. A 2008 Ford Explorer struck the back of the bus at an extreme speed. It pushed the bus over the employee and into the back of the wrecker. The employee was crushed by the bus. Its spring shackle bolts penetrated his back, killing him.
