Plane veers off runway at Denver airport

Plane veers off runway at Denver airport

DENVER (AP) -- A United Airlines flight out of Tucson veered partly off a taxiway at the Denver airport Saturday night.

Luckily, no injuries were reported.

Denver International Airport spokeswoman Mindy Crane says United Flight 1941 from Tucson had landed and was headed toward the concourse when the plane taxied partway onto a grassy area.

The plane stopped, and buses ferried passengers to the concourse.

Snow had fallen Saturday and temperatures had dipped below freezing, but airport officials say runways were clear at the time.

Crane says the incident is under investigation.
