Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200230407Event: 09/25/1998Employee Killed When Struck By Uprooted Tree
Employee #1 was using a crawler tractor to skid logs down a road after a shovel yarder had pulled them up the hillside to the base of the road. The yarder's one guy line for the boom was attached to a live standing tree. The yarder operator was bringing up a turn of logs when he felt the boom tilt. He let up on the brakes to give the line some slack when he noticed that the tree used for the guy line had uprooted and landed on the road, striking the ROPS of the crawler tractor and Employee #1, who had been standing next to his vehicle. The yarder operator administered first aid, but Employee #1 did not regain consciousness before he died.
