    The initial investigation shows an employee of airline catering company was fatally struck by a large LSG SkyChefs catering truck at the airport just before 7 a.m. according to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport spokesman David Magaña.

    Magaña said the incident happened at the loading dock area south of the company's building at 2120 West 33rd Street on the south side of DFW Airport.
