CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) — A Southwest Airlines employee has died from injuries in a crash between a baggage cart and a passenger shuttle on the airfield at Dulles International Airport.

Dallas-based Southwest said Friday that the employee was flown to a hospital after the Thursday morning crash and died overnight.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokesman Robert Yingling says none of the people aboard the shuttle that carries passengers between the terminal and concourse was injured. He says such a collision on the airfield is unusual.

Airport police are investigating. The airline did not release the worker's name or any details about the crash.
