A lawsuit over the death of a truck driver in an explosion at a Tacoma foundry has been settled. Charles McDonald, Sr. was fatally burned when propane he was unloading at Atlas Castings & Technology exploded in October of 2007. A hose owned by Atlas was missing a nozzle and clamps when McDonald arrived. Repairs had been made by inexperienced workers. The hose failed, releasing a cloud of propane that caught fire. The 8,000-tanker truck then exploded in an enormous fireball. The worker died a week later from the burns. John R. Christensen, a lawyer from Tacoma, Washington, represented the worker’s family and did a very good job for his clients.
