Man killed in forklift accident in Elkridge


A PERI Formwork Systems Inc. worker was killed Wednesday after a forklift ran over him at the concrete-forming company on Dorsey Run Road in Elkridge, according to the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health agency.

An employee operating a forklift about 2:20 p.m. apparently did not see Steven Francis Wall, 45, of the 200 block of Thomas Manor Lane in Forest Hill, and ran over him, said Linda Sherman, an agency spokeswoman.

Employees used another forklift to raise the equipment off Wall, said Bill Mould, a spokesman for the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services.

Firefighters performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Wall, but he was pronounced dead at the scene, Mould said.
