Forklift runs over, kills worker at Rossford plant

A 30-year-old South Toledo woman was pronounced dead yesterday at the Pilkington Group Ltd. glass factory in Rossford after she was run over by a forklift, authorities said.

April Waxler, of 1576 South Ave. was working at the end of a shipping line when the accident occurred about 2:30 p.m. at the plant, 140 Dixie Hwy.

The forklift was carrying a pallet, and the driver did not see Ms. Waxler in front of the machine, Rossford Fire Chief James Verbosky said.

Work in that area of the plant ceased for the day as Pilkington and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration each started investigations.
