On October 9, 2000, Employee #1 was operating a 6,000 lb Crown pallet jack to transport food goods from the receiving area to another part of the warehouse. There was a small platform at the front of the pallet jack that functioned as an operator stand on. As Employee #1 was leaving the receiving area, he was not paying close attention and he collided with a stationary pallet jack being operated by a coworker. Employee #1's toes were crushed between the fronts of the two vehicles and he was transported to the hospital. The company was informed on October 11, 2000, that Employee #1 underwent surgery to have three toes surgically amputated. He was not wearing steel-toed boots at the time of the accident.
