A spokesman for Detroit Metropolitan Airport says a regional jet has collided with a small vehicle carrying luggage in a taxi lane.

The driver of the luggage tug suffered minor injuries after the collision with the Northwest Airlink jet, operated by Pinnacle Airlines.

Airport spokesman Mike Conway says no one on the plane was hurt in the accident, shortly before 6 a.m. Thursday.

Conway says the plane carrying 21 passengers and three crew members was taxiing to the gate.

Conway says the plane had some damage. A message seeking detail was left with Pinnacle.

Northwest Airlink is part of Northwest Airlines, which recently was acquired by Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc.
