Taxiing incident Detroit

My understanding is, that, surprise, the Southwest aircraft was hit by the American. Anyone have any info? Happened in Detroit around 6AM local on the 17th. Sam

This from the news story:
"It was frustrating. I understand that that's a high stress job. Everyone's depending on you and you have a lot of things on your mind. But it just seems like 101 to make sure you have enough room. You learn that in a car, or when you're walking.

"We [are] just happy we weren't in the air."
True, that. Clipping the tail of one plane with the winglet of another could have been a whole lot messier in the air - a pretty impressive piece of precision flying, mind you.
