Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 125691.015Event: 04/23/2020Worker Placing Traffic Cones Is Struck And Killed By Vehicle
At 7:18 a.m. on April 23, 2020, an employee was working for a landscaping service. He was a regular full-time employee. He had been sent to work on the middle island of a public avenue in Riverside, CA. He was getting orange traffic cones and trash bags from a coworker, who was in the back of the company truck, a white Ford F350 with license number 6W70575. The employee took the cones to his position on the ground about 120 meters (400 feet) away. The cones were intended to control traffic. The truck was equipped with flashing lights, which were operating. Two signs had been put 210 meters (700 feet) and 105 meters (350 feet) away from the worksite on both sides of the road as a warning for traffic in both directions. The two workers had put cones close to the truck before the incident. A privately-owned vehicle, a 1999 Toyota Camry, with license plate number 8CCA368, hit the employee and then the company truck in its rear. The employee was thrown by the striking vehicle. He landed on the road. He had been killed. The coworker was thrown out of the truck and onto the ground. Their employer had all traffic control procedures per the watch-book, which was inside the company truck. The employee was pronounced dead at the site by the county sheriff department. The coworker sustained contusions on his left ribs, and a swollen and fractured left leg. He was taken to a hospital and released in two to three hours. A representative of the risk management consultants for the employer reported the injury to the San Bernardino District office of the Division at 11:15 a.m. on April 23, 2020. The Riverside County Coroner Department also reported the injury to the Division, at 7:38 a.m. on April 23, 2020. The employer met the Division's reporting requirements. A CSHO from the District office arrived at the site at 8:40 a.m. on April 23, 2020 at 0840 hours. No accident-related violation was cited.
