Fatal AA Ramp Accident At ORD

Sun Dec 10, 2000 8:26 am

Does anyone have details of the fatal AA ramp accident at ORD on Tuesday, Dec. 5? AA isn't saying much, other than it was a "tragic accident".

This is second-hand source info. I've seen nothing official or unofficial myself.
The ramp guy that was killed at work last week WAS driving his ramp tractor.. He came to a stop and jumped out while the vehicle was still moving and was " still in gear" he walked in front of the tractor which proceeded to pin him between a building and the tractor. This is according to person who saw the story on the local TV news on Tuesday night.
