BOSTON, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- An employee on the tarmac at Boston's Logan International Airport was struck and killed by a truck Monday, authorities said.

"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," Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, said in a statement. "At this stage, the fatality appears to be accidental and so the name of the deceased likely will not be released tonight."

The Boston Globe quoted State Police spokesman David Procopio as saying the man was found at about 7:30 p.m. near a plane at a cargo terminal.
