A baggage cart tug struck a United Airlines jetliner at O'Hare International Airport this morning, prompting an emergency response from firefighters. But there were no injuries, authorities said.

Crews were called about 7 a.m. to a gate area of the airport after the tug "clipped the fuselage" of a plane, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Richard Rosado said.

The incident involved a United Airlines jet, Chicago Aviation Department spokeswoman Wendy Abrams said.

Rosado said there was no fuel spill and the scene was secured within 10 minutes. No one was injured, he said.

The article is very forgiving...according to someone I know at ORD, the vehicle was so far under the Airbus they had to flatten the tires to get it out.
