no injuries reported after planes collide at chicago ohare airport

Two planes collided on the ground at Chicago O’Hare Airport on Wednesday.

According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist David Samuhel, the Chicago O’Hare Airport area was dry all day.

“Winds were rather light so it doesn’t look like it was weather-related,” Samuhel said.

“There was some shower and thunderstorm activity in the vicinity, but none of them occurred at the airport,” Samuhel said.

According to CBS Chicago and the FAA, while pushing back from Gate C30, United Flight 645 clipped the wing of United Airlines Flight 2746 that was parked at Gate C28. Officials say there is left wing damage to both planes.

Flight 2746 was scheduled to depart for Cleveland, Ohio, at 3 p.m. CDT but it has been canceled.
