Abstract
A 17-year old on a hay hauling crew died on July 8, 2000 from injuries received when he fell from a moving hay truck and was apparently run over by the vehicle's tire. OKFACE investigators concluded that to prevent similar occurrences, employers should: 1. Ensure that vehicles are adequately equipped with seating and safety belts for all passengers. 2. Ensure that sideboards or rails are installed on all open-sided vehicles on which employees must ride during vehicle operation. 3. Ensure that all employees are aware of the hazards to which they will be exposed and the controls necessary to prevent injury.
