British Jetliner clips building

The wing of a British Jetliner crashed into a building Sunday night at a Johannesburg, South Africa, airport on take off.

Crew aboard the plane accidentally took a wrong taxi way that ended up being too narrow for the size of the jetliner and resulted in the crash. None of the crew or passengers were hurt in the incident, but four people not on board sustained minor injuries.

One hundred and eighty five passengers were on the plane at the time of the crash. With crew members, the total number on board climbed to over 200. The airport is the busiest in South Africa.

The wing of the plane went through the second floor of an office building located at the airport. The four that were hurt were members of a cabin cleaning crew that were located in the office building. All four were injured by debris, and have been treated and released from a local hospital.

The plane was bound for London and the passengers were put in hotels for the night and new travel arrangements were being made.

Airport fire services cleaned up fuel that was spilled during the crash. The incident is under investigation.
