JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - An airliner landing at Wyoming's Jackson Hole Airport has slid off the runway. No injuries are reported.
Witnesses identified the plane as an American Airlines 757 and said it did not appear damaged. The incident happened shortly before noon Wednesday.
Airport officials say they can't immediately comment on the situation. A representative of Fort Worth, Texas-based American Airlines did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
Bradley Boner, a photographer at the Jackson Hole News & Guide newspaper, says a reporter for the newspaper was on the flight and said there were no injuries.
Janice Altman, who lives near the airport, says the plane slid into an area of deep snow.
The National Weather Service reports Jackson Hole has received up to 7 inches of snow since midnight.
