Both at fault

Victim not having any situational awareness of potential dangers

Driver of forklift driving with no line of sight, should have been going backwards

Forklift operator was going too fast for the limited visibility and size of load and proximity to people as well as having load too high, further blocking his view. Driver left safety of his vehicle during loading, a no no and was not aware of his surroundings.

His orange safety vest didn't do shit for him.

Seriously though, what a blood splatter. Poor guy.

How could anyone drive at that speed with no frontal vision whatsoever?

Maybe the victim didn't get enough sleep and let all safety go by the wayside. Especially careless knowing these forklift drivers are taking shortcuts all the time here.

Even his orange jacket wasn't sufficient to be seen... :/

Ever watching one or two time before going wander in forklift path like that, that's what we see in the industry security courses here

As far as I can tell, this is the peds fault. Great post!!
Yep. Guess his momma never taught him to look both way when entering a road way. (yellow lines)
Lazy parenting I suppose...
