DENVER (CBS/AP) — A Southwest Airlines jet slid off a taxiway at Denver International Airport on Saturday amid light snowfall and freezing temperatures.

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

Schiavone says passengers of Flight 1905 were bused from the taxiway to the concourse.

The Denver-bound Boeing 737 had departed Saturday afternoon from Metropolitan Oakland International in California.

Schiavone says flight schedules and overall DIA operations were not disrupted following the incident.
