Oct. 04, 1985
DALLAS (AP) _ A 29-year-old man has become the 137th victim of Delta Flight 191, more than two months after the jetliner crashed Aug. 2.
Mark Vicich, a sales representative for a clothing manufacturer, died Thursday, said Parkland Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Catherine Ellis. He was hospitalized after the crash with a broken neck and burns over more than 80 percent of his body.
The Lockheed L1011 crashed in a thunderstorm while attempting to land at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. A motorist was killed when the jetliner clipped his car on a highway near the airport and 132 others aboard the plane died. Three others died later from their injuries.
Vicich is survived by his parents, his wife Charlene and a brother and sister.
