LOS ANGELES (AP) - Officials say two planes clipped each other while on the ground at Los Angeles International Airport, but no one was hurt.

The City News Service reports that an arriving United Airlines flight and a departing Alaska Airlines plane bumped Sunday night while maneuvering between two terminals.

LAX Public Relations Director Nancy Castles says an investigation will determine the damage to the aircraft and who was at fault in the collision.

She says the United Airlines flight from Newark, New Jersey, was carrying 169 passengers and six crew members, while the Alaska flight had 182 passengers and six crew members.
