Update: Transport Canada released the photo of Air Canada Express plane, which was damaged during a ground collision with a fuel truck at Toronto’s Pearson International airport on 10 May 2019.
The DHC-8-300 Flight #8615 with 50 passengers onboard collided with a truck when it was taxiing to a gate at Terminal 1 around 1:36 a.m. ET on Friday.
The plane was originally headed to Sudbury from Toronto, but turned back to Pearson due to foggy conditions.
5 people, including pilots, received minor injuries, but the three were taken to the hospital.
Peel Regional Police Sgt. Bancroft Wright said, “the tanker truck struck the plane …and the plane was pretty much written off,”
A passenger said, “We were approaching the terminal and on the left side, I saw a large vehicle was barrelling — it appeared in parallel to us, but suddenly, bang!”
