The cause of the accident that killed U Zaw Aung at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday is still under investigation.

A worker for a private catering company was killed at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday after the vehicle he was driving crashed into a small plane that was tied down for the night.

U Zaw Aung, 60, of Daly City, was driving on a service road at the airport around 5:30 a.m. Saturday when he struck the tip of a private jet parked on the north side of the airport, according to SFO spokesman Michael McCarron.

The vehicle’s cab was crushed and Aung was pronounced dead at the scene.

McCarron said what caused the wreck is unknown, but the incident is still under investigation by the San Francisco Police Department. Because of the early hour, no flights were affected by the incident.
