United Airlines Plane Skids Off The Runway At Newark Airport

A United Airlines plane skidded off the runway as it attempted to land at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey on Saturday (June 14) afternoon. All flights in and out of the airport were halted as the Port Authority Police Department and the Emergency Service Unit rushed to the scene.

They are working to evacuate the passengers from the plane and then will have to tow it back to the gate.

It is unclear how many people were on board the plane or if there were any injuries. Passengers were being evacuated from the plane and taken to the terminal on buses.

According to the New York Daily News, the tire popped as the plane landed and the pilot lost control as the jet skidded off the runway and came to a stop in a grassy median.
