141 people unhurt when airliner skids off runway

BALTIMORE (AP) — A Southwest Airlines plane with 141 people on board ran off a taxiway at Baltimore-Washington International Airport Sunday, but no one was injured.

Flight 459 skidded onto a grassy field as it was preparing for takeoff to Nashville, airport spokesman John White said.

Passengers were taken back to the terminal and checked onto another flight to Nashville, White said. Technicians were checking the plane Sunday night for a cause of the skid.
