Aviation investigators are looking into the collision of two jetliners on a taxiway at Boston Logan International Airport.

A Delta 767 was getting ready to take off Thursday evening for Amsterdam when its wing ran into the tail section of a commuter plane operated by Atlantic Southeast Airlines. The commuter plane was heading for Raleigh-Durham.

The wingtip of the Delta jet was sheared off, and the tail of the smaller plane was crumpled.

There were no serious injuries, but one person complained of neck pain.
