The plane, which had 139 passengers on board, was parked at the gate and deplaning when it was struck at around 4:17 pm.
A 90-year old woman was treated at Massachusetts General Hospital after she injured her leg when she fell from her wheelchair during the incident, Massachusetts State Police said in a statement.
No other injuries were reported. A JetBlue employee was cited for failing to stay with the truck in the incident.
This isn't the first time something along these lines has happened: Earlier this month, an Air France Airbus 380, the world's largest plane, clipped the wing of a smaller jet at New York's JFK airport, causing the smaller plane to spin.
The incident was caught on tape, causing an internet sensation.
