On June 19, 2017, a haul truck driver traveled into the pit loading area and waited to be loaded. The driver stopped the haul truck about 30 feet from where a supervisor parked his van. The supervisor had been giving instructions to excavator operators in the area, and he returned to his van as the loader operator sounded the horn to notify the driver to move the haul truck into position for loading. The truck driver drove forward, striking and pushing the supervisor's van a distance of 30-40 feet. The supervisor was able to get out of the van through the window, and he had no injuries.
