Two agencies are investigating the death of an LSG Sky Chefs employee who was killed at the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport on Sunday when he was hit by a company truck. The fatal accident occurred near a loading dock.
The victim, whom authorities did not identify, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was described as being in his 50s.
The incident occurred about 6:45 a.m. at the loading dock of the LSG Sky Chefs flight catering facility, 2120 W. 33rd St., on the south side of the airport.
The victim was on the side of the building when he was hit by a large Sky Chefs catering truck.
DFW Airport paramedics alerted the Tarrant County medical examiner's office shortly after the accident.
According to airport spokesman David Magaña, "it's the kitchen area of the company where they load the trucks with the food, the trucks then go to the planes and load them up."
No other details of how the incident happened were released.
The airport Department of Public Safety is investigating.
According to LSG Sky Chefs spokesman David Margulies, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration [has] also been notified.
The incident did not affect flight operations or terminal operations at DFW but caused some delays in catering services to some flights as the investigation was conducted, authorities said.
