Plane from Florida slides off runway at Ohio airport

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — An Ohio airport says a plane that arrived from Florida with up to 150 people on board skidded off a runway and got stuck in grass.

Travelers waiting at Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport to board the plane for its return flight to Florida were left stranded Monday night. They were offered refunds or hotel rooms for the night.

Airport director of aviation Dan Dickten tells WKBN-TV that the Allegiant Air flight from St. Petersburg landed and went into the grass, possibly after taking a turn that was too wide while taxiing. Passengers had to be bused to the terminal.

No injuries were reported.
