PC World – Server Worth $1.5 Million Wrecked by Forklift
The accident happened in October, 2006. The server destined for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, was being transferred from a delivery truck to T.R. Systems’ warehouse in Alexandria, Virginia, near Washington, D.C. It was packaged in a crate on a pallet and held on a fork-lift truck’s prongs.

A report said that the rear wheels of the fork-lift truck encountered a step at the warehouse entrance. The truck rocked and so did the pallet: “the base of the pallet and the crate broke and the crate fell onto the curb, damaging the server packed inside.”
