Southwest jet slides off taxiway at Denver airport

DENVER (AP) - A Southwest Airlines jet has slid off a taxiway at Denver International Airport amid light snowfall and freezing temperatures in the area.

DIA spokeswoman Jenny Schiavone confirmed Saturday evening that the aircraft slid off the taxiway shortly after 5 p.m. There were no reports of injuries.

Schiavone says passengers of Southwest Airlines flight 1905 were bussed from the taxiway to the concourse.

She says flight schedules and overall airport operations were not disrupted following the incident.

Further details were not immediately available.
