An Adams County woman died following a workplace “accident” Wednesday at Winter Gardens Quality Foods in New Oxford, according to York County Coroner Pamela Gay.

The woman, whose name was not released pending notification of next of kin, was “critically injured during the operation of a forklift” about 3:20 p.m. Wednesday, according to Gay’s release.
