Jet From Mpls. Slides Off Iowa Taxiway; No Injuries
FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — No injuries have been reported after a jet partially slid off a taxiway following a landing at the airport in Fort Dodge.
Pinnacle Airlines spokesman Joe Williams says the accident occurred after the plane landed a little after 4:30 p.m. Monday. The plane carried 32 passengers and a crew of three.
The CRJ-200 jet was listed as Flight 3441 and is part of the Delta connection to and from Minneapolis.
Williams says the plane’s nose gear ended up in the grass next to the taxiway pavement. Buses took the passengers and crew members to the airport terminal.
Williams said Tuesday morning that he didn’t have a report from the crew about the accident cause, but he says the airport reported thin ice conditions.
