Two United Airlines planes collided on the airfield at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on Wednesday afternoon, with no injuries reported.

Around 4:20 pm, Flight 645 was taxiing from Gate C30 when the aircraft’s left wing clipped the left wing of Flight 2746, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Federal Aviation Administration rep Tony Molinaro confirmed that both United planes sustained damage to their wings in the accident.

The FAA is investigating, the Sun-Times reported.

United did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment on the story.

“I noticed a lot of people over by the windows looking out, wondering what was going on. A lot of airport employees, people with their cameras up,” witness Alexandra Carley told CBS.

“Our plane that was supposed to come into O’Hare had to circle around for a while after the accident and by that point, the weather got bad,” United passenger Melissa Wester said.

“This many planes in this area, this many times a week. Something is bound to happen at some point. I’d call that a minor accident,” United passenger Mark Ritchie, who witnessed the accident from a flight nearby, told the outlet.
