Passengers traveling on a Dragonair Airbus A330 from Hong Kong to Penang, Malaysia got an unexpected delay earlier this week when a delivery van crashed into their plane as it was departing the gate at Hong Kong International Airport.

Watch video of the van crashing to the plane in Hong Kong below:

It is unknown why the van driver crashed into the plane, but given how difficult it would be to not see a huge jet in front of you, it looks like it was either intentional, a medical issue with the driver, or a mechanical issue with the van. According to the police, “The driver who was trapped on board the light goods vehicle was rescued. He was injured in the head and shoulder and taken conscious to North Lantau Hospital for treatment”, but no passengers on the plane were hurt.

With all of the moving vehicles & planes at busy airports, it’s a wonder crashes don’t happen more often, but this one is particularly shocking as the van drives right into the plane. The number one rule is that aircraft have the right of way at an airport, but that clearly didn’t happen with this crash in Hong Kong.
