A Southwest Airlines employee died overnight after an accident at Dulles International Airport, according to a spokesman for the facility.
The authority did not release a name for the worker who suffered injuries after an accident that occurred about 7 a.m. Thursday on the tarmac near the B concourse.
Robert Yingling, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, said the worker was piloting a baggage cart when it collided with one of the Dulles people movers.
No passengers were injured, Yingling said, but the worker was airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital.
“Police are still investigating,” he said.
