Wing Of Cargo Plane Clips Jet

A United Airlines spokesman says the wing of a cargo plane clipped the tail of a United Express jet at O'Hare International Airport, but no one was hurt.

United spokesman Rahsaan Johnson tells the Chicago Tribune that the United flight was pulling into the gate about 9:15 p.m. Saturday when the accident happened.

He says it didn't cause a commotion, and the 27 passengers and crew on board didn't even realize what had happened. All got off the plane safely.

The United Express flight had come in from Charlotte, North Carolina.

Johnson says he doesn't know yet whether the snow in Chicago played a role in the accident. The airline is investigating.
