Taxiing Plane Clips Parked Jet at Florida Airport

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say no one was injured when two airplanes got into a sort of fender-bender at an airport in Florida.
The Broward Sheriff's Office says a taxiing Spirit Airlines Airbus A-320 clipped a US Airways Airbus A-320. The US Airways jet was parked Monday night in a remote area away from the gate at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
Authorities say the left wing of the Spirit aircraft was damaged, while the US Airways aircraft was left with a gash in its tail section.
Firefighters were called to the scene, but there was no fuel leak from either aircraft.
