SPOKANE, Wash. — A United Airlines flight bound for Denver slid off the taxiway and into a snowbank at Spokane International Airport on Tuesday morning, officials said.

Passengers were still aboard United Flight 812 and crews were working to get Boeing 737 back on the taxiway. KREM reported there were 130 people on board the flight.

No injuries were reported.

The airport was closed to make sure adequate braking conditions are established, the airport said on Twitter.

Icy conditions were making it difficult for crews to get the plane back on the taxiway and to evacuate passengers.
