CHARLOTTE, N.C. - An American Airlines plane arriving at Charlotte-Douglas Airport has collided with a 'tug' vehicle outside of Terminal E, hospitalizing one person.

An American Airlines flight 5233 coming from Yeager Airport in Charleston, West Virginia landed around 3:40 p.m. Tuesday, when it began taxiing to gate E-35. Shortly after, it ran into an airplane tug vehicle not working with the plane.

31 Passengers and 3 crew were on board the plane at the time of the incident, but none were reported injured. 

The driver of the vehicle was taken to a local hospital and is in stable condition.

CLT's Terminal E houses roughly half of the regional flight gates. The crash is expected to impact dozens of regional flights tonight and possibly into tomorrow.

Sources tell NBC Charlotte that the north part of Terminal E will be closed until the FAA and NTSP complete their investigation into the crash.

PSA Airlines 5223, CL600-2B aircraft, and a tug collided on the north ramp at Charlotte Douglas International Airport at 4:35 pm today. The collision occurred while the aircraft was taxiing to the gate after landing. The aircraft and tug are blocking several gates.
