Officers were initially advised that an employee was pinned underneath a forklift near the loading-dock portion of the business. Mentone and Multi-Township E.M.S. arrived at the scene and located the victim, Arnold Shepherd, 52, Warsaw, who had a visible open compound fracture and injury to both legs. Shepherd was immediately transported to Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne, in serious condition.K.C.S.D. officials stated that a preliminary investigation has determined that a semi-tractor/trailer had initially backed into the loading dock area at the Creighton Brother Processing Plant, driven by Robert Carlton, Burleson, Texas. Calrton purportedly noticed that he had backed his trailer into the loading dock at an slight angle, and proceeded to pull forward in an attempt to straighten the vehicle. At apparently the same time, Arnold Shepherd had begun to drive forward and into the enclosed semi-trailer unit with a forklift. During the course of movements, the forklift fell from the open-end of the trailer. Shepherd was subsequently ejected from the forklift and pinned underneath the 2,000 lb. unit.Plymouth, INNo author availableWorker injured in Warsaw forklift accidentThe Pilot Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:23591Change0Usable2014-10-23T14:44:14-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:23560One of accused murderer's victims had ties to Knox2014-10-22T13:58:24-04:002014-10-22T13:58:24-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot NewsChristine Williams is one of the seven victims identified by Gary police and tied to Darren Vann, 43.
