He was moving south from the center aisle in the pallet-building area toward a T-intersection, where he intended to turn left into the tie-guard area for rebuilding. Employee #1 was unable to stop the pallet jack at the intersection and jumped off, catching his foot between it and two stacks of pallets. He suffered an open compound fracture of his right foot, for which he was hospitalized. Employee #1, who only had three days on the job prior to the accident, had not been trained in the safe operation of the pallet jack.
