Police on Wednesday said that a man lost his life when two vehicles collided on the airfield at London’s Heathrow Airport, Europe’s biggest hub.

“One male is believed to have sustained a broken shoulder; his injuries are not life-threatening or life-changing. Another male, aged in his 40s, was taken to a west London hospital with serious injuries. He has since died,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

A spokesman for the airport said that some passengers had to detrain from a plane due to the incident.

“We will be fully cooperating with the police in the investigation which will follow,” Heathrow said in a statement.
