A tractor-trailer clipped a JetBlue plane that had just arrived from For Myers, Florida on Tuesday at Boston's Logan Airport, CNN reports.

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.
