Fingers Trapped by Winch Line

A two-person truck crew was loading a rig mat onto a Texas bed truck. An initial loading attempt was unsuccessful. During the second load attempt, the driver engaged the winch while the other crew member was still handling the winch line/deck chains. The crew member’s fingers were trapped between the winch line and truck bed roller. The injured crew member suffered serious injuries to their index and middle fingers.
