One of Aeromexico's Boeing 737-800s apparently sustained wing leading-edge damage after colliding with a ground vehicle at Los Angeles airport.
The aircraft (XA-AML) struck a provisioning truck while taxiing, tipping the vehicle over and injuring its eight occupants.
Los Angeles airport's operator says the 20 May accident involved flight AM642, a scheduled service from Mexico City.
The aircraft – a three-year old airframe – taxied to the gate after the collision and remained parked at Los Angeles while the "minor" damage was examined. Video images of the scene indicate impact damage to the leading edge of the starboard wing.
Preliminary analysis, still unconfirmed, indicates the aircraft landed on runway 25L and crossed runway 25R and an adjacent taxiway before the collision on a parallel service road at the southern end of the Bradley international terminal.
Visibility at the time of the accident, around 14:27, was good with no adverse weather conditions.
Los Angeles' operator says none of the 149 passengers of the Aeromexico aircraft was injured in the collision. It adds that the cause is under investigation by airport police, who will submit a report to the National Transportation Safety Board.
