ATLANTA, May 13 (UPI) -- A taxiing Delta Airlines plane struck the back of another Delta aircraft in Atlanta but there were no injuries reported, the airline said.

Flight 552 was taxiing at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport Thursday night when it clipped the back of the stationary Flight 552, Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Passengers were deplaned from both aircraft, which had landed at around the same time, Talton said.

Delta will cooperate with a National Transportation Safety Board investigation, she said.
