The accident happened on Thursday morning at the Pape Machinery factory on Baseline Street near NW 338th Avenue. An employee was using a forklift to load a row tiller a customer had purchased onto a trailer, with the customer standing nearby. The forklift then tipped over, falling onto the customer and trapping him beneath it.

Workers used a second forklift to free the man, and he was rushed to a trauma hospital with severe leg injuries. The accident remains under open investigation at this time to determine cause and liability.
