Truck hits plane at PIT

A truck (catering by the looks of it) collided with a Southwest 737-800 (N8608N) at Gate A1 at Pittsburgh International Airport today. The driver was hospitalized, and his condition hasn’t been released. The plane was pulled from service, and the flight to Denver Canceled while they wait for a new plane according to a Southwest Spokesperson. No one on the plane was injured, but the driver obviously was since he was taken to the hospital. All other airport operations were unaffected.
