A truck belonging to the anti-terror coalition’s air base crashed into a Tupolev Tu-154 at the Manas airport in Bishkek, a source in the airport told Interfax.

The air base’s truck rammed into the Tu-154 on the tarmac, the source said.

“The vehicle was speeding along the runway and crashed into the plane’s side. No one was aboard the plane at that moment,” he said.

“The driver, a U.S. serviceman, suffered injuries and was hospitalized. The site of the incident was cordoned off by the airbase staff,” the source said without mentioning the damage inflicted on the plane, which is owned by a Kyrgyz airline.

No official comments have been released thus far by the airport authorities, or the airbase command.

Kyrgyz television channels aired a video of the collision, filmed by a witness with a cell phone.

It was a luck he didn’t hit the fuel tank thus causing a major blast and tens of victims among the passengers.
