WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita police say a man broke into a business and injured an employee while recklessly driving a forklift.

The man fled after the incident early Tuesday at Bodycote Thermal Processing in south Wichita. He has not been captured.

Police say three employees returning to the business from a break found the man sitting on a forklift. When they asked him to leave, he began driving the forklift around the warehouse, intentionally hitting several objects.

One employee suffered a broken leg and cuts when he was pinned by the forklift. Police say he is in fair condition Tuesday at a Wichita hospital.

Lt. Doug Nolte says the man didn't say anything while he was driving the forklift. He had no known ties to the business or its employees.
