Eight people were injured on Saturday 20 May, after an Aeromexico flight collided with an airport utility truck, flipping it over. The incident took place just after the jet landed at the Los Angeles International Airport, authorities said.
After landing at 2.30pm local time on runway 25, which is located on the south side of the airport, the Boeing 737 moved to the nearby taxiway and collided with the utility truck, the Los Angeles fire department said.
According to flight radar, the plane arrived at LAX from Mexico City.
Two people in the truck were seriously hurt, and six people suffered minor injuries, the Los Angeles fire department said.
As quoted by abc7, passenger Kole Chadwick said, "I was able to see what was going on outside my window after the collision."
"We came to an abrupt stop and there was a really loud thud. We were seated right next to the emergency exit and we had a pretty good view of it," he added.
The right wing of the aircraft was damaged in the crash, but none of the 149 passengers and crew on board were hurt, LAX police said.
The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.
In another incident on Saturday at LAX, an inbound aircraft experienced hydraulic issues.
"Some tense moments there," Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department told KPCC. He says that the plane later landed safely and taxied to the gate, where the passengers deplaned.
