CHICAGO, May 2 (UPI) -- Two airplanes clipped each other on a runway at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, Federal Aviation Administration officials said.

A Lufthansa cargo jet was in a hold line Wednesday evening when a Polish LOT passenger plane, with 257 passengers and a crew of 12 aboard, clipped its wing while trying to maneuver around it, officials said.

There were no injuries, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The incident was similar to one at Newark, N.J., Liberty International Airport Wednesday, in which the wing of a Scandinavian Airlines plane clipped the tail section of a United Airlines ExpressJet plane, the (Newark) Star-Ledger reported. Again, no injuries were reported.
