Truck hits Southwest plane at BWI Airport


LINTHICUM, Md. (WBAL) — A ground vehicle at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport collided with a Southwest Airlines plane on a runway late Sunday night, officials said.

Southwest Flight 6263, which was arriving in Baltimore from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, was pulling into a gate when a ground vehicle came in contact with the plane, officials said.

Several passengers sent NBC affiliate WBAL 11 News pictures of the collision before and after getting off the plane.

No one on the plane, or in the truck, was injured. All 172 passengers were able to get off the plane using airstairs.

Officials are still investigating what caused the collision.

It is just the latest in several incidents involving a Southwest Airlines plane. Last week, a window cracked on a flight causing an emergency landing. Last month, an engine explosion caused debris to break a window, partially sucking a passenger outside. She later died at the hospital after the incident.
