The Southwest Airlines flight was taxiing to its gate, when a ground crew's pickup truck hit the Boeing 737 at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Southwest Flight 6263 was arriving from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a little after 1:30 a.m. when the accident happened.

Passengers on board a Southwest airlines flight from Nashville had a bit of a scare overnight when their flight was diverted to another airport. "Once we landed everything was going fine, but just as we pulled to the gate I heard a crunching sound", 23-year-old passenger Zuryna Smith told The Post.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

There were no injuries reported to the 172 passengers aboard, the FAA said.

A representative for Southwest Airlines said an instrument inside the cockpit indicated that one of the plane's flaps had possibly not extended all the way.

A spokesperson for BWI airport was not immediately available for comment.

The airline worked quickly to accommodate all 103 passengers inside the plane in order to avoid any further delays, according to the airline's spokesperson.

"We didn't even get so much as a drink coupon for the inconvenience", she said.
