Eight people were injured on Saturday after an Aeromexico flight clipped an airport utility lorry, flipping it over, shortly after landing at Los Angeles international airport, authorities said.

The Los Angeles fire department said the commercial passenger jet collided with the truck around 2.30pm, causing the truck to overturn. The Boeing 737 was taxiing to an arrival gate when it collided with a utility truck carrying eight people, fire and airport officials said.

Two people in the truck were seriously hurt, and six people in the truck suffered minor injuries, the Los Angeles fire department said. The plane’s wing was damaged in the collision, the fire department said.
