FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - American Airlines flight #140 headed to DFW from Baltimore was cancelled after the pushback tractor hooking up a tow bar went into the plane’s nose.

This picture was tweeted of the mishap:

CBS 11 is told the female driver of the pushback tractor was taken to the hospital out of precaution.

Passengers were boarding the Texas-bound jet when the incident happened. They have since switched air crafts and are on their way to DFW, according to an American Airlines spokesperson.

There were no injuries to passengers or workers reported.
