Garberville California Highway Patrol officers airlifted a Redway man to an out-of-area hospital Thursday after he sustained serious injuries in an accident.

John Schaafsman, 61, was injured when the all-terrain forklift he was operating went over a hill at the scrap yard across from the CHP office, according to a CHP release. After Schaafsman was extricated, officers administered medical aid.

Any additional questions should be directed to the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office at 445-7251.
