06/11/1994N518USafter being cleared to taxi for departure at St. Paul, the tug driver pushed the airplane back to a spot close to the gate. To conserve fuel, only the right engine was started fro taxiing. Due to the position of other aircraft and closeness of the gate, the captain elected to make a 270 degree right turn to taxi to the runway. During the turn, jet blast from the right engine overturned 3 baggage carts. One of the carts hit a ground worker, which resulted in a serious injury. The company operations manual stated that taxi thrust should be kept below 45% N1. The flight data recorder indicated the right engine N1 peaked at 49.73% as the throttle was advanced to initiate the turn.
