Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 124455.015Event: 03/02/2020Employee Is Crushed And Killed By Rolling Tractor-Trailer
At 8:15 a.m. on March 2, 2020, an employee was coupling a removable gooseneck l ow-bed trailer. The employee reattached the gooseneck to the trailer and then co nnected the air and electrical lines. Shortly thereafter, the tractor and trail er rolled backward and stopped after striking a parked vehicle that subsequently struck a parked trailer. The employee was fatally injured after being crushed under the tractor's driver's side rear dual tires. The tractor's parking brake system had not been engaged; therefore, when the employee connected the air lin es to the trailer, the trailer's air brake system did not engage. Additionally, the tractor and trailer were on an incline (approximately 3-5 degrees), and whe el chocks were not used to prevent movement. The tractor-trailer may have rolle d back when the employee operated a lever to raise the trailer deck off the grou nd, which would have been the next step in the process after connecting the air and electrical lines, and the employee typically stood between the tractor's rea r dual tires and the trailer deck to operate the lever. There were no witnesses to the incident. The employee was killed as a result of multiple blunt force in juries and mechanical asphyxia.
