The worker operated a power Crown Pallet Truck Number 17 (Model PE 4500-80 Series) and picked up two trash cans. When he tried to make a turn, he lost control of the pallet truck and the handle of the machine hit his right hip. The worker's right lower leg got pinned between the pallet truck and a yellow post. He suffered a compound fracture to his lower leg, which required two surgeries and hospitalization for four days.
