La importancia de redoblar las medidas de seguridad y prevención para que no suceda esto.
A 59-year-old man working on the tarmac near the north cargo area of Logan International Airport was killed last night in a collision involving an airfield services truck, authorities said.
The man was suffered a fatal head injury in the vicinity of a plane that was stationary at the time. Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley’s office said it appears the plane was not involved in the fatal collision.
“The preliminary information is that an employee on the tarmac suffered fatal injuries after being hit by a truck as it was traveling in reverse in the area of a plane, and it does not suggest that he was struck by a plane,” Conley’s office said in a statement.
State police said the victim was guiding a lavatory waste truck to an aircraft when the truck hit him under the plane. The crash happened about 7:19 p.m.
The 47-year-old driver of the vehicle that struck the man was hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital for stress. He will also be tested for drugs and alcohol, though authorities said there were no obvious signs of impairment. The victim’s name was not immediately released.
