Airport truck crashes into plane

Although the area was foggy, investigators don't believe weather was a factor in the incident

SALT LAKE CITY — Officials at Salt Lake City's airport say an airport truck has crashed into the wing of a parked cargo plane.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( http://bit.ly/11FXwF7) that the driver was injured when the truck windshield was struck by the airplane's wing Sunday night.

Salt Lake City International Airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann says the man's condition wasn't immediately known.

Gann says the crash damaged the plane's wing and spewed fuel stored in the wing onto the tarmac.

A cause for the crash wasn't immediately known. Gann says the area was foggy but the weather didn't appear to be factor.
