Flight OS127 from Vienna landed at Franfurt at 21:50 hours on runway 07L. According to the crew, the aircraft left the runway 07L at holding point P8. The Airbus taxied down taxiway P and N11. It was dark, raining heavily and visibility was limited. On taxiway N11 a VW Caddy vehicle collided with the aircraft. The vehicle drove on a service road that crossed the taxiway N11 in this area. The driver had performed some work on the airfield and was on his way back to the workshop. The Caddy was driving from west to east. The Airbus taxied on the taxiway N11 to the south. According to the flight crew, the collision warning light, taxi light, navigation lights and logo lights were turned on.
The crew of the Airbus had noticed a 'slight tremor' but this was attributed to the unevenness in the surface of the taxiway. The aircraft taxied to the intended position A34.
