Woman hurt in forklift accident

The Perham Police Department responded to an incident at Barrel O' Fun last week after a report that a woman had been hurt in a forklift accident.

Around 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 19, 52-year-old Karen Christiansen suffered unspecified injuries when a pallet full of boxes she was pulling was struck by a forklift, causing the boxes to fall on her.

She was taken by ambulance to Perham Health. Her condition was unknown at press time.

The driver of the forklift told the responding officer that she came around a corner and honked her horn three times before hitting the pallet Christiansen was pulling.
