Crew seriously injured while two airplanes collided on ground

What happens in this video ?

May 10th 2005 - The crew of the DC-9-51 reported loss of right hydraulic system fluid quantity during the climb to cruise after takeoff from Columbus, Ohio. Upon landing at Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport, the plane cleared the runway and began the taxi to its gate. Shortly thereafter, the crew reported that a total loss of steering and braking occurred. The aircraft impacted the right wing of Northwest A319, which was pushing back off gate. Both cockpit crew members aboard the DC-9 were seriously injured; the remaining passengers on both aircraft were uninjured.

When you are flying an aircraft that has hydraulic systems and suffer a failure of that system, you must know that the steering and brakes are affected. Flaps, gear, and on some aircraft flight control systems are the hydraulics most pilots are concerned with and after a loss or partial loss of that system the crew may feel relieved to get the aircraft on the ground with out damage. Bob Hoover said, however that a pilot must "fly the aircraft all the way to the gate!" After landing, the steering may work enough to ease off taxiway but fluid could still be bleeding out and, as these pilots found out steering and brake failure is inevitable with the other problems of the hydraulic system. My airline suffered a few incidents of the same nature with some resulting frights and dings. The best option I have seen in hydraulic system failures is, once the aircraft stops on the landing roll out, the flight crew should put away their egos as pilots and call for a tow to the gate.

Well, it does say the cockpit crew were seriously injured, but it still looks like possibly the least dramatic plane crash of all time.

I wonder if reverse trust failed as well
