  • Passengers get the fright of their lives when pickup truck CRASHES into their Southwest Airlines plane after it lands at Baltimore-Washington airport

A ground vehicle at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport collided with a Southwest Airlines aircraft early on Monday morning.

A Southwest Airlines plane traveling from Nashville to Dallas Love Field Airport made an emergency landing at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport late Monday night.

The flight in question - flight 6263 - had flown in from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and had landed on the runway at Maryland at 12:10 a.m. EDT when the incident occurred.

Southwest Airlines says a flight from Nashville, Tennessee, had to make an unscheduled landing in Dallas.

A representative for Southwest Airlines said an instrument inside the cockpit indicated that one of the plane's flaps had possibly not extended all the way.




The cause of the collision is not known, but the FAA will investigate, it said.

Southwest confirmed an incident to USA TODAY's Today in the Sky blog, saying that there were no injuries to any of the 172 passengers.

A spokesperson for BWI airport was not immediately available for comment.

Neither the airline nor the airport released any further details. We'll do our best to get you going ASAP, Michael!

The accident is said to be under investigation.
