SAPULPA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a 20-year-old worker was killed in a forklift accident at a Sapulpa manufacturing plant.

The highway patrol says the accident occurred early Friday at Paragon Industries, which manufactures metal tubing for the oil industry. According to a preliminary report, the forklift was being used to pick up some pipe on private property.

The highway patrol says William Hunter Miller of Jenks jumped on the side of the forklift but slipped and fell off. The highway patrol says Miller died after he was struck by one of the forklift’s rear wheels.
