As they were working, the driver of a TAC truck, who was applying the first layer of oil, backed over Employee #1, killing him. His coworker was also struck by the truck, but was knocked clear and was not injured. None of the six coworkers at the site remembered hearing the TAC truck's back-up horn. The truck's backup alarm was tested the following day and was barely audible.
