Snowy conditions cause plane to slide off MSP runway

A Delta Air Lines jet slid off the runway Friday at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport as several inches of snow fell across the Twin Cities.

The Boeing 757 carrying 189 people slipped off the taxiway around 7 p.m., according to the Pioneer Press.

None of the passengers were injured, according to the Associated Press.

The pilot called for assistance after the plane's left side landing gear was stuck in the grass, according to KARE 11.

Nearly 40 regional flights to other Midwest cities were canceled Friday by Delta Air Lines, according to KARE 11.
