On July 27, 2017, a Heavy Truck Driver was fatally injured when he was crushed inside his parked pickup truck by a 320-ton haul truck. A Komatsu 930E-4 haul truck ran over his parked, F-550 pickup truck. The victim was parked within the designated traffic pattern for the haul trucks, outside of the illumination of the singular light plant. The accident occurred because the operator did not have policies, procedures, and controls to ensure the adequate illumination of dump site areas and did not manage light duty vehicle traffic in active dump areas.
