A Spirit Airlines flight bound for Las Vegas slipped off a taxiway Saturday evening at O’Hare Airport, but no one was hurt.
The passengers were taken off the plane by 6:40 p.m., put on buses and transported to the terminal, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said.
Karen Pride, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Department of Aviation, would not say whether the accident was weather-related.
