Bus Ends Up On Side After Being Clipped By Delta Plane

DETROIT (WWJ) – Passengers on a Delta airplane taxing to its gate at Metro Airport Saturday afternoon felt a bump as a wing tip clipped an empty shuttle bus and knocked it on its side.

No one was injured in the accident, but there was some damage to the plane and the bus.

Mike Conway is with Detroit Metropolitan Airport and describes the scene:

“We’ve got a shuttle bus on its side, and the wrecker is out there now picking it up and ID techs are taking pictures to kind of recreate the accident scene just like you would do on the highway,” said Conway.

Conway says all the passengers were taken off the plane into shuttles and the gate.

The FAA and Wayne County Airport police are on the scene investigating the accident.

    What on earth is the driver thinking. He isnt supposed to even go in there much less leave an empty bus sitting there. .
    If someone had done that when I owned my bus line to Detroit Metro-I would have drove down picked up the keys to the bus in person and gave him a free ride home.
