Morrisons employee hurt in fork lift accident
The Health and Safety Executive is investigating after a woman was trapped under a fork lift truck and badly injured at the Morrison’s superstore in Guiseley.
Emergency services were sent to the store in Otley Road, at about 9am on Thursday after an accident in the loading bay.
A woman in her 60s, understood to be an employee of Morrison’s, was trapped beneath the fork lift and had to be released by firefighters from Rawdon.
The woman suffered severe, but non-life threatening, leg injuries. She was taken to Leeds General Infirmary by air ambulance.
A Morrison’s spokesman confirmed the accident, but added: “There is an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive and it would not be appropriate to comment at the moment.”
