DENVER — A Southwest Airlines passenger plane slid off of a taxiway at Denver International Airport Saturday evening.

According to Katie McDonald, a spokeswoman with Southwest, the nose gear from flight #1905 slid off a taxiway just after 5 p.m. The flight was scheduled from Oakland to Denver, and there were 125 passengers and five crew members on the plane, according to McDonald.

There were no injuries initially reported, however a triage unit was set up at one of the gates, according to scanner traffic.

Passengers were bussed back to the concourse, and McDonald said they planned on getting those with reconnecting flights back on their way.

Investigators surveyed the scene. Airport operations were still running normally after the incident, according to DIA. Officials did not say if the incident was weather-related or not.
