Transcript for Planes Clip Wings in NY as Holiday Road Travel Surges
Those holiday storms causing trouble for holiday travelers. Dangerous roads, as we showed you. And these images coming in from Laguardia airport right here in New York. One passenger snapping this picture through the window. The tip of that southwest plane gone. You can see the airline employee carrying the missing piece of the plane after the two planes collided, clipping wings. ABC's David Kerley with what happened. Reporter: Talk about a delay. Hard to fly when partial of your jet's wing has just been broken off. The southwest pilot may not have even realized it. Looks like you might have touched that American. Okay. Reporter: More than a touch of that southwest wing and the tail of an American jet. Happened on the ground at new York's Laguardia. Den verver denver-bound passengers stuck. I'm looking at the lines, going, oh, boy. Reporter: The heavy Christmas eve storm could cause delays. It's a trickle effect. It will delay the flight there and coming back. Reporter: The highways could be treacherous. Aaa predicting a report number on the road this holiday season, nearly 90 million. If it is a record-breaker, expects believe part of the reason may be that surprise Christmas present consumers got. Those low gas prices. $2.40 a gallon. 27 states now with gas under 2 bucks a gallon. In Des Moines, it usually costs this driver 61 bucks to fill up. Today, it was $31. So, real good deal. Reporter: There is no end in sight to these low gas prices. So, drivers will save on the way back home, as well. And hopefully the weather will be better after this Christmas eve storm. David? David Kerley tonight. Thank you.
