A collision between an Air Canada Express flight and fuel truck at Toronto’s Pearson International airport Friday left passengers injured, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and NBC News.
The news sites report the incident took place around 1:36 a.m. ET as Flight 8615, which was carrying 50 passengers, was taxiing to a gate at the Canadian airport.
Peel Regional Police Sgt. Bancroft Wright told CBC that the fuel truck driver was responsible for striking the plane and has been charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle.
Wright added that two passengers and one flight attended were treated for injuries.
A spokesperson with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority confirmed to NBC that three people were transported to the hospital after sustaining minor injuries.
The flight was originally headed from Toronto to Sudbury, Canada, but turned back to the airport due to weather conditions.
