Passengers on an American Eagle flight arriving at Chicago's O'Hare airport got an unexpected jolt Wednesday when the right wing of a Boeing 747 cargo plane taxiing for departure clipped the tail of the commuter plane.

Twenty-one passengers who were evacuated from the commuter plane and three crewmembers from EVA Cargo Flight 441 were examined, but there were no reported injuries.

The minor collision occurred just after 1 p.m. An EVA cargo plane was on a taxiway when it came in contact with American Eagle Flight 4265, which was arriving at a gate after traveling from Springfield, Missouri., said Karen Pride, spokeswoman for Chicago Department of Aviation.
