Glad to hear you are ok.
Righty, you are actually a lot luckier than this poster. Where that Pinto weighed in at just over 2000lbs and had air in the tire, that forklift likely weighed about 7500lbs with solid tires. If it was a front tire you were lucky, if it was a rear tire you were miraculously so. I work in the material handling industry, and forklift accidents such as this can have devastating results. Count your blessings, I am glad you are OK.
