Two Skywest EMB-120s clipped wings last night at LAX.

Flight UA6310 (N567SW) bound for Palm Springs with 25 passengers and crew of 3 clipped wings during push back with another EMB-120 (N562SW) while parked at gate 71B.

Flight was cancelled, and NTSB investigating.

We're there no wing walkers? The area around gate 71A/B is very open and lit I have a hard time seeing how something like this could happen during pushback.
