I hope she’s all right now. It must have been very frightening for her.

A personal injury lawsuit is probably forthcoming.

Curious as to whether the negligent fork lift operater will be discharged.

Like the rest of us, he probably has a family to support and bills to pay.

Everyone deserves a second chance.

Many forklifts nowadays have a warning sound/signal similar to the ones used on trucks when backing up.
