DORNIER 328, WASHINGTON, D.C., JUNE 17, 2002–Failure to follow operational procedures resulted in a serious injury to a U.S. Airways Express flight attendant during a scheduled Part 121 flight from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA).
At about 7:50 p.m., the flight attendant was attempting to close the main cabin door on board the standing Dornier 328 when ground service personnel closed and locked the door, catching the flight attendant’s hand and fracturing her finger and wrist. The procedure for the twin turboprop was for ground personnel to close the door flush with the fuselage, after which the flight attendant would lock it.
