MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - No one was hurt when one commercial airliner bumped into another on the tarmac at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan says a Spirit Airlines plane was being backed away from the Concourse E gate and ran into a parked United Airlines jetliner around 7 a.m. Sunday.

Hogan tells the Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1XxXdxt ) both planes were damaged but no injuries were reported.

He says the United plane had no crew, airport employees or passengers on board.
