The flightcrew was waiting to be pushed back from the gate when a tug impacted the airplane's left wing. The airplane was parked and the engines off. The tug driver was bringing luggage to a different airplane, and didn't see the accident airplane until the collision. The reported visibility at the airport, about the time of the accident, was 1/4 mile in fog.

Probable Cause: The tug driver's inadequate visual lookout, which resulted in a collision with a parked airplane. A factor was the fog.
