Watch: Madness At US Airport As Truck Spins Out Of Control On Tarmac

An out of control catering truck briefly turned drink cans into projectile weapons at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, stunning staff who were helpless to stop it.

In a video captured by Twitter user Kevin Klauer, the cart can be seen spinning in reverse with a number of airport staff watching on, unsure of what to do next.

As the cart swerved around in front of workers, cans of drink start to fly from the truck in every direction.

The cart came dangerously close to hitting a plane parked at the terminal, before a quick-thinking worker drove a ramp into the rogue vehicle, pushing it onto its side causing it to spill its contents all over the tarmac.

There have been no reports of injuries, with just one worker visible in the video being helped to their feet after possibly stumbling back to avoid being hit by the truck.

In a statement to the Washington Post, American Airlines said that it was "investigating an incident involving a catering truck".

"Preliminary reports indicate that the accelerator became stuck and caused the catering cart to lose control,” the statement read.

“No American Airlines team members were injured and the incident resulted in one 10 minute flight delay.”
