On May 12, 2008, an employee was working for a wholesale distributor of machinery, equipment, and supplies. He was in the firm's laydown yard, operating a boom truck crane to lift and move a hub and spindle assembly of a rear axle, which weighed approximately 7,500 pounds. As the employee was lifting the unit, the hub and spindle separated, causing the spindle to fall from the crane. It struck the employee around his head and torso, killing him.
