Federal aviation officials said it could take several weeks to determine the cause of a collision early Saturday between a taxiing airplane and a maintenance truck at O’Hare International Airport.

The United Express jet, operated by SkyWest Airlines, was moving on a closed runway from a maintenance hangar to Terminal 2 at 4:49 a.m. when it collided with a pickup truck, said Elizabeth Isham Cory, a Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman.

No passengers were on the plane being piloted by two maintenance workers, Cory said.

“At this point what we have is contact with a city truck. An incursion has to be investigated and determined,” Cory said. “It’s usually a loss of separation…between an aircraft and another aircraft that may be coming to the airport.”
