CHICAGO (AP) — Two Delta Airlines aircraft collided on the tarmac at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

According to Delta spokeswoman Chris Kelly Singley, Delta flight No. 2207 to Minneapolis and flight No. 1777 to Atlanta made contact before takeoff Friday.

Singley said there were no injuries reported to passengers or crew on the two aircraft.

A Chicago Fire Department spokesman said the two planes were backing away from loading gates when they collided. It was not immediately clear which parts of the aircrafts made contact. However, officials say the planes incurred minor damage.

Singley said the passengers on the Minneapolis flight were being placed on a flight later Friday. Those on the Atlanta flight were being placed on flights later Friday or early Saturday.
