Planes Collide in Minneapolis, 6 Hurt

Two Northwest planes collided Tuesday evening, leaving six people hurt. Four were crew members, and two were ground crew. One remained hospitalized. No passengers were injured, although one complained of shortness of breath after the incident and was treated as a precaution.

A DC-9 that had been experiencing hydraulic problems crashed into an Airbus A319 as it taxied to the gate. The Airbus' wing ripped into the DC-9's roof. The DC-9's fuselage was lodged under the Airbus' tail. After being separated early this morning, both planes were towed to Northwest hangars.

NTSB investigators from Chicago have arrived in Minneapolis and are now looking for the cause of the accident.
