The spokeman for Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, Robert Yingling, at Southwest Airlines said Friday, "that the employee was flown to a hospital after the Thursday morning crash and died overnight. None of the people aboard the shuttle that carries passengers between the terminal and concourse was injured. Such a collision on the airfield is unusual."
Airport police are investigating this incident. Therefore, the airline will not release the worker's name or any details about the crash and is not planning on releasing additional information at this time.
