De-icing Truck Bumps Airplane At Portland Jetport

PORTLAND, Maine - Officials say a de-icing truck bumped into an airplane on the tarmac at the Portland International Jetport. No injuries were reported Wednesday aboard Delta Air Lines Flight 4770 to LaGuardia Airport, but passengers had to return to the gate.

Multiple de-icing trucks were in use because of snow and ice on Wednesday, a day after the temperature climbed to 58 degrees in Portland.
