Van hits plane at Boston airport; no injuries reported

Posted

BOSTON >> A refueling van has struck a plane at Boston's Logan International Airport, damaging the jet but causing no injuries to the passengers.

Authorities say the van, which did not have a driver, struck a Tampa-bound near a gate at about 6:45 a.m. Friday.

A spokeswoman for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs the airport, says the van struck the wing of the JetBlue plane.

Passenger Chaz Hallock tells WCVB-TV that he felt the plane shake, and then looked out the window and saw people chasing the van.

Passengers were taken off and the plane was taken out of service and the exactly what happened remains under investigation.
