Two planes clip each other on ground at LAX with 351 passengers

LOS ANGELES — Officials say two planes clipped each other while on the ground at Los Angeles International Airport, but no one was hurt.

The City News Service reports that an arriving United Airlines flight and a departing Alaskan Airlines plane bumped Sunday night while manoeuvring between two terminals.

LAX Public Relations Director Nancy Castles says an investigation will determine the damage to the aircraft and who was at fault in the collision.

She says the United Airlines flight from Newark, New Jersey, was carrying 169 passengers and six crew members, while the Alaskan flight had 182 passengers and six crew members.
