PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Southwest Airlines employee is being treated at a hospital after the truck he was driving struck the rear of a plane parked at a Pittsburgh International Airport gate.
An airline spokesman said the Boeing 737-800 was taken out of service after the crash Monday morning.
Southwest says the ramp agent had been operating a provisioning truck, which is used to supply material for flights, including food and drink.
The plane was carrying 174 passengers and six crew members on a trip to Denver and then on to Seattle.
The airline says it hasn’t received reports of any injuries among those on the plane.
