NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Passengers on Delta flight 1066 from Nashville to Atlanta were removed from the plane after it struck a light pole while taxiing on the ramp.

Nashville International Airport spokeswoman Shannon Sumrall said no one was injured in the incident, which happened at 10:50 a.m. Thursday.

Sumrall said the Boeing MD-88 aircraft knocked down a light pole, damaging a wing. The passengers exited the plane by the stairs and were taken back in shuttles to the terminal where they were booked on other flights.

Delta Air Lines Inc. spokesman Morgan Durrant said airline officials do not yet know how the accident happened, but they are investigating.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said in an email that the agency also is investigating.
