No passengers were injured after two planes clipped wings Wednesday afternoon at Chicago O'Hare Airport.
Twenty-four people were evacuated after a cargo plane made contact with an American Eagle regional jet around 1 p.m., the Chicago Fire Department said. Both planes were on the ground when their tail wings clipped.
Chicago Department of Aviation spokeswoman Karen Pride said American Eagle Flight 4265 from Springfield, Mo., was headed to a gate when EVA Cargo Flight 661 was on the taxiway.
A source on the scene said the commercial plane was clipped at Gate G20.
Twenty-one people from the American Eagle plane and three crew members from the cargo craft were evacuated and evaluated, according to fire department spokesman Larry Langford.
No injuries were reported, Langford said, and the incident is considered a minor contact.
The fire department will remain on the scene to investigate.
