Bothell man dies after Lynnwood forklift accident

LYNNWOOD — A Bothell man died Tuesday from injuries related to a forklift accident the day before.
The incident was reported at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Lynnwood police Cmdr. Jim Nelson said.
The victim, 69, was walking through a parking lot at a business in the 4000 block of 198th Street SW.
A forklift operator saw something in front of his machine and slammed on his brakes, causing a box of merchandise to fall off the machine onto the victim, Nelson said.
The victim was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he died early Tuesday. His name has not been released.
The forklift driver, a 46-year-old Edmonds man, is an employee of the business.
A Lynnwood police investigation is ongoing. The state Department of Labor and Industries also is conducting a safety inspection regarding forklift training and operation, a spokeswoman said.
