HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- A 57-year-old man from Spokane, Wash., has died in a forklift crash on a U.S. Forest Service road south of Plains.
The Montana Highway Patrol says the man was operating a Gradall material handler on a downhill grade Tuesday afternoon when the forklift veered off the right side of the road and rolled down a steep hill. The man was thrown from the equipment and died at the scene.
