CHICAGO (AP) — Officials say no one was hurt when the wing of a cargo plane taxiing at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport clipped the rudder of an American Eagle flight arriving from Missouri.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro says the incident happened about 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Molinaro says EVA Flight 661 was scheduled to depart for Anchorage, Alaska. He says the Boeing 747 cargo plane clipped the rudder of American Eagle Flight 4265, which was a much smaller Embraer 135. That plane had just arrived from Springfield, Mo.

No injuries were reported. The FAA is investigating.
