Two planes at one of the busiest ski airports in the country collided this morning, but no one was hurt. Passengers were forced to evacuate a Southwest Airlines flight after a cargo plane clipped its wing while taxiing at Salt Lake City International Airport.

The Southwest jet was fully loaded and ready to fly when a passenger reported watching a FedEx plane hit the wing of the Southwest craft, slicing off its wing tip.

Jet fuel is stored in the wing so passengers were removed from the flight.

The FAA is currently investigating the incident.
