CHICAGO (STMW) - A fuel truck crashed into a plane at O’Hare International Airport late Sunday, leaving the driver of the vehicle and a flight attendant with minor injuries.

The truck struck the wing of the plane about 11:15 p.m. while the plane was stationary at O’Hare, according to Chicago Police and Chicago Fire Department Chief Juan Hernandez.

The plane, GoJet Airlines flight No. 3693, was operating as United Express and headed to Omaha, Nebraska, according to a statement from Trans States Holdings, which owns GoJet Airlines.
