Nobody Hurt when Small Plane Slides Off Sacramento Runway

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Flights are running on time again at Sacramento International Airport following delays caused when a private plane slid off a runway.

Airport spokeswoman Laurie Slothower says no injuries were reported in the accident Friday.

One of the airport’s two runways was closed for a time — causing more than a dozen flights to be either delayed or diverted.

The Sacramento Bee says the Aerostar plane slid into grass beside the landing strip. The plane had to be towed away.
