A 57-year-old Kelowna man was taken to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in a forklift accident at Fripp Warehousing earlier this afternoon.
The Fripp Warehousing employee was using the forklift to load a transport truck when the accident occurred.
Kelowna RCMP Corp. Steve Woodcox said initial details were a little sketchy other than to say the machine operator became stock between the boom and the forklift.
Woodcox said the man suffered apparent minor injuries to his back but was taken to KGH for further treatment and was conscious when he left the worksite.
Fripp Warehousing is located on Ethel Street in the heart of Kelowna’s north end industrial district.
He said WorkSafe BC will conduct a further investigation into the cause of the accident.
