He was operating a Crown Model Number PE4500 Front Rider powered industrial truck. Nearby, a coworker was operating a Crown Model Number RR5700 stand-up-type Reach Forklift. The employee turned into Aisle Number 34 just as the coworker was backing out from that aisle. When the employee stepped off his powered industrial truck, he caught his left ankle in pinch point created by the two vehicles' lower frames as they came to a stop. He sustained a fractured left ankle and a laceration to his right forearm. The fracture required multiple surgeries. The laceration required stitches. He was hospitalized.
