MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Delta Air Lines flight carrying 60 passengers slid off a taxiway in the snow after arriving at Dane County Regional Airport in Madison, but no one was hurt.

Airport spokeswoman Kim Jones says Delta Flight 385 from Minneapolis landed at 4 p.m. Monday and was taxiing when the Boeing 737-800 left the paved surface.

Passengers were taken off the plane and brought to the terminal.

Jones says the airport was closed for about an hour while a second runway was cleared for use but has since reopened.
