CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Two planes at O'Hare International Airport reportedly clipped wings Wednesday afternoon.

A 747 cargo plane clipped the wing of an American Eagle jet taxiing down the runway at around 1 p.m.

About 21 passengers are being evacuated from the regional jet.

There is damage to both aircraft, but there are no reported injuries nor was there any fuel spilled.

American Eagle flight 4265 came from Springfield, MO and was traveling to the gate at O'Hare. An EVA 135 cargo plane, departing to Anchorage, Ala., was on a taxiway at the same time. Its rudder made contact with the jet, FAA spokesman Tony Molinaro said.

Fire Media Affairs called the collision "minor." Firefighters are on the scene evacuating both planes.
