Lady luck must have a strong grudge against actor John Travolta because lately only misfortune has come his way. Just last week, the movie star’s dogs were killed during a freak accident at an airport in Maine. The innocent pups were smashed when they were struck by a service vehicle at the Bangor International Airport. The tragedy occurs nearly a year and a half after the “From Paris with Love” star lost his son, who died of a seizure when left at the family home in the Bahamas.

According to a statement from city officials

“At approximately 1am on Thursday, May 13, 2010 an airplane carrying members of the John Travolta family landed at BIA. While there, two small dogs were taken for a walk by someone who is not a family member. An airport service pickup truck was approaching the airplane to service the airplane and did not see the dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs were struck and killed. The airport is investigating the accident.”

Airport director Rebecca Hupp also spoke out to Banger Daily News on behalf of the incident:

“This is an unfortunate accident. Our deepest sympathies are with the family.”

Our deepest sympathy goes out to you John. Somebody should be losing their job for this!
