From the Mpls Start Tribune.

Engine shutdown led to 2005 collision
A Northwest Airlines pilot's decision to shut down the left engine on a DC-9 was a "probable cause" for that jet's ground collision with an Airbus A319 in May 2005 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, according to a federal investigative report.

"The DC-9 and the A319 collided near a gate, and fuel poured into the DC-9 cockpit. The captain sustained serious injuries, and seven airline employees and passengers were treated for minor injuries. There were 94 passengers on the DC-9 and 39 passengers on the Airbus."

My God, that must have been frightening...fuel pouring into the cockpit.

Luckily for all involved, there was no fire ... amazing considering the wing ripped through the overhead panels on the DC9's cockpit, with all the wiring and stuff up there.

The DC9 was damaged beyond economical repair (in addition to the cockpit damage, it suffered damage mid-fuselage from the tail of the A-319), and the 319 was repaired and returned to service.

The more important question is how safe was it to go all the way from CMH to MSP when they supposedly knew half their hydraulics had kicked the bucket shortly after leaving CMH? I know that the hydraulic systems are all cross-linked, but from the way I'm reading that if that left engine had shut down in flight for whatever reason (let's assume bird ingestion on approach) they would have lost all steering control?
