BOSTON (AP) - A fuel van has struck a plane at Boston’s Logan Airport, damaging the jet but causing no injuries to the passengers.

Authorities say the van, which did not have a driver, struck a Tampa, Florida-bound JetBlue plane at a gate at about 6 a.m. Friday. A spokeswoman for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs the airport, says the van ran into a wing.

Passenger Chaz Hallock tells WCVB-TV that he felt the plane shake, and then looked out the window and saw people chasing the van.

Passengers were taken off and the plane was taken out of service. Exactly what happened remains under investigation.

JetBlue says in a statement that the aircraft is being inspected and passengers were placed on other flights to Tampa.

This story has been corrected to show that the van struck the plane at about 6 a.m., not 6:45 a.m.
