Forklift load falls on man, fatally injuring him

LYNNWOOD, Wash. (AP) -- A forklift driver hit the brakes and sent the vehicle's load falling onto a customer outside a Lynnwood business, causing fatal injuries.

Police say the driver was moving a box of merchandize through the parking lot Monday morning when he saw a flash of blue and slammed on the brakes. The box fell forward onto the 64-year-old Bothell man.

The customer was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he died early Tuesday.
