BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) – Officials say a United Airlines plane carrying more than 70 people skidded off a runway at Buffalo Niagara International Airport while landing in strong winds.

It happened just after 11:30 p.m. Sunday as United Express Flight 3796 was landing in Buffalo from Washington Dulles International Airport. Officials say the plane landed on a slick runway and skidded about 300 feet into a grass “safety area.”

No injuries were reported.

Officials say the main runway remained open and the incident is not expected to impact travelers Monday.

Authorities are investigating the incident.
