A plane ran off the end of a runway at Buffalo Niagara International Airport late Sunday, but no injuries were reported, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.
United Airlines 3796, a Bombardier CRJ aircraft operated by Mesa Airlines, ran into the grass beyond Runway 32 after it landed at about 11:50 p.m., the FAA said. Passengers and crew evacuated the plane and were taken to the terminal.
Michael Dena, a passenger on the flight, said the landing left passengers scared.
“When we hit, it just didn’t seem right. The braking seemed very erratic, and the runway was feeling rougher than it normally did,” Dena said.
Anurag Kashya said the plane stopped far beyond the runway.
“By the time we stopped, it was all in the middle of the grass. There was no runway to be seen,” Kashya said.
The flight had originally departed from Washington Dulles International Airport.
In a statement, United Airlines attributed the incident to high winds.
The FAA said it is investigating the incident.
