A fiery collision earlier this year between two planes was the fault of the ground crew at Toronto's Pearson International Airport, according to a new report from the Transportation Safety Board (TSB).

Nobody suffered major injuries, but hundreds of passengers were put at risk when two Boeing 737-800 aircraft — one operated by Sunwing, the other by WestJet — touched wings on the ground on Jan. 5, sparking a fire that passengers captured on video.

The report, released Wednesday, says a ground crew handling the Sunwing aircraft towed the jet backward without what are known as "wing walkers" — members of the crew who make sure the plane's wingtips don't collide with a ground vehicle or another aircraft.

The Transportation Safety Board says the evacuation of a WestJet plane after a collision at Pearson International Airport in January 2018 was hampered after some passengers tried to take carry-on luggage with them.

The TSB says that violates the rules of Swissport, the aviation services company that coordinates ground crews, Sunwing and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA).

Additionally, the evacuation process was made more difficult because passengers had refused the instructions of flight attendants.

According to the report, flight attendants had repeatedly asked passengers to leave carry-on baggage behind, which several passengers didn't do.

Other irregularities included the fact the plane's emergency lights had failed to activate during the evacuation, as well as the use of "phraseology" the GTAA calls inconsistent with their procedures.

The GTAA also said that due to large distances and obstructions, airport officials often do not have a clear view of certain areas, including the parking area named in this incident.

Multi-vehicle collision closes part of Hwy. 401 near Yonge St. .
A multi-vehicle collision has shut down the express lanes on Hwy. 401 near Yonge St. and sent three people to hospital. Paramedics say they responded to the scene around 12:30 a.m. and transported three patients to trauma centres. One of the patients had to be extricated from the vehicle they were in, a process that took an extended period of time. Of the three, two have serious injuries, and one has non life-threatening. The highway’s express lanes remain closed in both directions. That includes eastbound lanes closed at Allen Rd. The collector lanes are open. It is not known when the lanes are expected to reopen.
