NAPLES, Fla.- Christian Flores, 30, of Bonita Springs, was working for J & A Loading of Bonita Springs when he was killed in a forklift accident on Wednesday evening.
The company was delivering roofing tiles to 630 Fountainhead Way. Flores was walking between the moving forklift and the
delivery truck parked in the roadway when he was run over. It appears that the cause of the accident was both faulty equipment (broken mirror and reverse beeper) and a lack of experience and training on behalf of the forklift operator.
OSHA is meeting with the owner of the company and Naples Police Detectives to discuss any further violations and/or
Naples Police are treating the incident as an accidental death and do not believe any charges will be filed against the operator of the forklift.
