United Airlines worker struck by baggage cart, seriously injured at Newark Liberty International Airport (KEWR), New Jersey

NEWARK —  A United Airlines employee sustained serious injuries Sunday morning after being pinned by a cart carrying luggage at Newark Airport, a spokesmen for the airline and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said.

While driving on the airport's tarmac, a vehicle carrying trays of food for in-flight dining struck the luggage cart, which struck the worker, said Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico.

The accident took place at about 9:20 a.m. Sunday, and the man was immediately taken to a local hospital, said Christen David, a spokeswoman for the airline.

"A United supervisor is at the hospital to provide support and assistance to the injured employee and his family," David said.

She would not, however, provide any additional details about the nature of the accident or the man's identity, citing the employee's privacy.
