FORT LAUDERDALE — One person has been taken to the hospital after a pickup truck and a charter bus collided at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Airport spokesman Greg Meyer says the two vehicles grazed each other Sunday afternoon, sending one person to the hospital.

A Broward Sheriff's Office statement says a rescue team had to remove the driver from the truck. He was conscious and alert when taken to Broward Health Medical Center. Authorities say the driver of the charter bus was not injured. He was the only person onboard at the time of the accident.

No other injuries have been reported. The crash remains under investigation.
