Planes Collide on Ground in Chicago

Jupiterimages/Photos.com/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- A pair of Delta planes made contact while on the ground at O'Hare Airport in Chicago Friday evening, but the collision caused no injuries, an airport official said.

Delta confirmed two planes collided to ABC News affiliate KSTP of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn. -- the destination of one of the flights.

That plane, Flight 2207, an Airbus 319, collided with an MD80 bound for Atlanta as it pushed back from the gate in Chicago just before 8 p.m. CT, Delta said. A passenger on board the Minnesota-bound plane told KSTP it was struck on the right wing.

Damage to the plane was being assessed, Delta told KSTP.

Passengers from Flight 2207 and Flight 1777, the Atlanta-bound plane, were removed from the planes as Delta tried to accommodate them on other flights, ABC News Chicago affiliate WGN reported.
