Air Canada plane, fuel truck collide at Pearson airport

Five people have been hospitalized following an airplane's collision with a fuel tank truck at Toronto's Pearson Airport.

Const. Iryna Yashnyk says the man driving the fuel truck was not injured and faces a charge of risky driving.

The aircraft was taxiing to its gate, according to a spokeswoman for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, which operates Pearson.

A spokesman for Peel Regional Police says the truck hit the plane three times, and five people - the pilot, co-pilot and three passengers - were treated for minor injuries.

"The aircraft came to a full stop, crew deplaned passengers quickly and they were escorted into the terminal building", she added. Emergency personnel arrived at the scene and transported three crew members and two passengers to a local hospital for further evaluation.
