Abstract
A 57 year old male drilling bit salesman died from injuries received when the company pickup he was driving struck the rear of a backhoe while rounding a curve at the hill crest of a two lane highway. On impact, the pickup frame buckled in the middle and the passenger compartment ignited, burning the pickup cab with the victim trapped inside. Employers may be able to minimize the potential for occurrence of this type of incident through the following precautions: 1. Provide driving hazard awareness training to all road salespeople. 2. Insure vehicle condition through periodic inspections.
