Détails:
A Boeing 717-200, N894AT, was struck by a catering truck while it was parked at the gate at Milwaukee-General Mitchell Airport, WI (MKE). There were no injuries to the deplaning 103 passengers and 5 flight crew. The airplane was substantially damaged.
The airplane was operated by Southwest Airlines as Flight WN-725 as a scheduled domestic passenger flight from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, GA (ATL).
The airplane had arrived at gate C14 and passengers had started deplaning. A catering truck approached the right front service door. The driver said he attempted to stop, applying the brakes 3 times. The truck did not stop and struck the airplane. After the accident, the driver of the truck found a sleeve of hot/cold cups under the brake pedal. The damage to the airplane was confined to the area of the production splice, a joint where the forward portion of the fuselage is mated to the midsection fuselage. This included fuselage stations 207, 218, 228. 235, and 250.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "An obstruction (a sleeve of cups) that lodged under the catering truck brake pedal, which prevented the driver from stopping the truck before it struck the parked airplane."
