Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201751732Event: 01/29/2008Water Truck Driver Killed In Vehicle Rollover
At approximately 12:30 p.m., on January 29, 2008, Employee #1, a 45 year-old mal e, a truck driver with Santa Clara, LLc. was driving a Mack water truck on a mou ntain road in Weston, Colorado that used to remove water by-product from natural gas wells located in the Bosque Del Oso State Wildlife Area in Las Animas Count y. The truck driver was attempting to travel up a four-hundred-foot section of d irt road with an approx. six-to-nine road grade. The truck was fully loaded with water at a gross weight of 55,000 lbs. Tire tracks indicate that Employee #1 go t stuck half way up the section, and then backed down the road. It then appeared that Employee #1 made a second attempt to make it up the hill. At which point t he truck got stuck again and the Employee #1 lost control of the vehicle. The ve hicle appears to have slid downhill and went off the embankment travelling appro ximately ten-feet at which point the rear dually tires struck a large boulder, s pinning the cab from the uphill travel to a downhill travel. The water in the ta nk most likely shifted in this motion, and sent the truck into a roll approximat ely another fifteen feet down the embankment. Employee #1 appears to have possib ly made an attempt to bail out of the vehicle, and was caught in the roll of the vehicle. Employee #1 was found with his lower extremities in the cab and his he ad and shoulder were pinned under the cab. Employee #1 was killed in the event a nd the speed of travel was never determined. The weather conditions were listed as cold and windy with areas of blown snow across some of the dirt roads.
