On August 23, 2005, Employee #1, a Service Technician, drove a Range Rover 4.6 HSE onto a Rotary Lift, Model Number SM 122-7, with a 12,000-pound capacity.

The lift was raised approximately 2 ft above the ground. The vehicle rolled off the front of the lift and struck Employee #1. Employee #1 was caught between the front end of the vehicle and the machine. Employee #1 sustained fractures and was hospitalized.
