A 91-year-old Pinedale woman died after being struck by a forklift Monday afternoon.

Officials say Martha Nannen was walking to the Ridley’s Market from an adjacent senior living facility when she was hit in the store’s loading area.

Sublette County dispatch received the call about 3:15 p.m. and Nannen was taken to the Pinedale Medical Clinic. She was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

Sublette County Coroner Donald Schooley said he hasn’t yet named a cause of death, but will possibly know within the next few days.

Officials declined to release the name of the driver. Stephen Smith, public information officer for the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office, said he is unsure how fast the forklift was moving or if any charges will be filed.
