Five people have been hospitalized following an airplane's collision with a fuel tank truck at Toronto's Pearson Airport.
Bancroft Wright, the tanker truck struck the plane and the driver has been charged with unsafe operation of a vehicle under the federal Aviation Act.
Authorities say the Air Canada Jazz flight with 51 people on board had left for Sudbury but turned around because of bad weather and was taxiing back to the gate when it was struck at 1:36 a.m.
Earlier in the day, a spokeswoman for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, which operates Pearson, said three people suffered minor injuries in the incident. She said the person who remains in hospital was a passenger on the flight.
Following the incident, the aircraft came to a full stop and the crew deplaned passengers quickly and they were escorted into the terminal building. "Three crew and two passengers were transported to hospital for further assessment".
"EMS arrived to assess passengers and crew".
Both the aircraft and fuel vehicle have been removed from the area and the airport is operating as normal, spokesperson for the GTAA Ryan White said.
Toronto Pearson is the busiest airport in Canada and features five runways.
The extent of damage to the plane wasn't immediately clear.
