CHICAGO (WLS) -- One person was hurt after a plane and truck crashed at O'Hare International Airport.

There were two crashes at O'Hare in the last two days. Two people were hurt in the most recent collision.

Around 11 p.m. Sunday, a fuel truck smashed into a Go Jet Airlines flight. The scene was chaotic.

An airline spokesperson said Flight 3693 operating as United Express was standing still just before takeoff when a fuel truck crashed into the plane's wing.

Chicago police said the truck driver was taken to Presence Resurrection Medical Center in good condition. A flight attendant was "slightly hurt" and also taken to Resurrection, police said.

The flight was headed to Omaha, Nebraska. There were 65 passengers and 4 crew members on board. No one on the plane was injured.
