Man found dead on tarmac at Logan airport in Boston

Continue reading below

A man was found dead tonight on a tarmac at Logan International Airport after apparently being hit by a truck, officials said. David Procopio, a State Police spokesman, said the man was found near a plane at about 7:30 p.m. He had no additional details. Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, said in a statement that the death occurred at a cargo terminal. “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,” Wark said. “At this stage, the fatality appears to be accidental and so the name of the deceased likely will not be released tonight.” It was not immediately clear if the man worked for an airline or for Massport, the agency that runs Logan.

A Massport spokesman referred questions to State Police.
