(d) A tramway operator shall immediately, by telephone, report to the department's mechanical inspection section, any accident involving the tramway that results in a fatality or an injury that requires a person to receive a doctor's care. If that office is closed, the local police, or the local office of the Department of Public Safety, division of state troopers, shall be notified. Within 48 hours, a written report of the accident shall be mailed to the department's mechanical inspection section. If a mechanical or structural failure causes a fatality or an injury that requires a person to receive a doctor's care, the scene of the accident must be secured and not disturbed to any greater extent than is necessary to prevent additional injuries and to remove the deceased or injured person. If the tramway must be removed from service, the department will conduct an immediate investigation and the tramway may not be repaired or operated until the investigation is completed.
