A Delta Air Lines flight carrying 60 passengers slid off a taxiway in the snow after arriving at Wisconsin's Dane County Regional Airport. No one was hurt.

Airport spokeswoman Kim Jones says Delta Flight 385 from Minneapolis landed at the airport in Madison. It was taxiing when the Boeing 737-800 left the paved surface.

Passengers were taken off the plane and brought to the terminal.

Jones says the airport was closed for about an hour while a second runway was cleared for use. It was then reopened.
