Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport spokesman David Magana says no one in the plane was hurt Thursday.

The Midwest Airlines flight to Milwaukee was canceled. Airline spokesman Michael Brophy says the Boeing 717 is significantly damaged.

The worker for a ramp services company who drove the van was flown to a Fort Worth hospital. The worker's condition has not been released.

Magana says the driver had a medical problem and lost consciousness behind the wheel. The plane was parked at the gate.
