Plane and van collide at Calgary Airport

There's been a bizarre collision between a plane and a cube van at the Calgary International Airport.

The incident happened Monday morning on the tarmac near Gate 11 on the Air Canada side of the airport.

Jody Mosely of the Calgary Airport Authority says it appears the aircraft was pushed off the gate and bumped the vehicle, knocking it over.

She says one person was checked out by EMS for what she described as a potential minor injury.

Alberta Health Services says one person was assessed on site and didn’t require further care.

There were no passengers on board and Mosely says there was no impact on the operations at the airport.

She says there will be an investigation to determine exactly what happened.
