A Delta 767 was taxing across Boston's Logan airport tonight when it made a connection with a Delta regional jet. The force of the crash was so strong the Boeing left a winglet wrapped up in the poor little jet's tail.

Only one person was hurt in the crash, which involved a 767 headed towards Amsterdam and a CRJ headed to Raleigh. The smaller plane shows serious signs of damage, including housing parts of the larger Boeing.

We're guessing the passengers coming home from Amsterdam would have been a lot chiller than those headed that way.

"We're guessing the passengers coming home from Amsterdam would have been a lot chiller than those headed that way."

"767 headed towards Amsterdam"

"CRJ headed to Raleigh"

Sorry for the nitpicking but neither of those planes appear to be coming from Amsterdam. One is (was) just heading there.

"One person was complaining of neck pain, and was taken to a local hospital for treatment, Peters said."

This will probably turn into a stupid lawsuit that they (frustratingly) might actually win. Why can't people just suck it up, be happy nothing more serious happened, and move on with their lives?
