BOSTON — A JetBlue jet that had just landed at Boston’s Logan International Airport had its left wing clipped by a truck that was being escorted on the ramp by the airline, forcing officials to take the aircraft out of service.

JetBlue Flight 464 had just landed from Southwest Florida International Airport and passengers were deplaning when the incident occurred Tuesday afternoon.

Airport spokesman Phil Orlandella says there were no reports of injuries among passengers aboard the Airbus 320 jet.

The Federal Aviation Authority, Massachusetts state police and airport operations officials are investigating.

New York-based JetBlue flies a fleet of Airbus 320 and Embraer 190 aircraft.
