On June 12, 2015, a 66-year old service mechanic with 42 years of experience was killed at a sand and gravel surface mine. The victim reported to several witnesses that he had hit his head earlier in the shift and afterward was found unconscious. The victim was transported to the hospital where he died the next day. Although there were no witnesses to the accident, the mechanic mentioned that he had bumped his head while repairing the haul trucks but did not mention what he bumped his head on. The investigators found no hazards in either location that could have contributed to the accident. The accident occurred while the mechanic was working on or underneath a haul truck causing him to strike his head on an undetermined object.
