Pickup truck collides with Southwest plane at Baltimore airport

The Federal Aviation Administration on Monday was investigating a collision between a Southwest Airlines Co aircraft and a truck at Baltimore-Washington International Airport as the airline faced scrutiny over a midair engine explosion last month that killed a passenger.

Southwest Flight 6263 was arriving from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a little after 1:30 a.m. when the accident happened.

There were no injuries reported on the plane, WJLA said. Some reports said fire crews were assisting the passengers disembark the plane, while the pickup truck remains stuck underneath the jet.

The truck crash is the latest of several incidents for Southwest Airlines in recent weeks.
