Flight off runway in slick weather

CLEVELAND – An airport spokeswoman says a United flight landing in Cleveland from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., slid off a slick runway onto a grassy area amid freezing winter weather.

No injuries were reported in the incident Friday morning.

Spokeswoman Jackie Mayo of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport said two busloads of passengers were taken from the plane to the terminal.

Crews were sent to unload the luggage and tow the plane off the grass.

Mayo said all the landing gear wound up on a grassy area as the plane ran off the runway while approaching a taxiway about 10:45 a.m.
