OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) ' Authorities say a United Express plane carrying 44 people has skidded off the runway at Ottawa International Airport.

Emergency and airport officials said Sunday all the passengers traveling from Chicago got off the plane safely and were taken into the terminal on city buses.

Airport spokeswoman Krista Kealey says there were no injuries and everyone is fine.

United Express is a brand name under which regional airlines operate feeder flights for United Airlines.

Ottawa police said in a news release that the plane skidded onto a grassy area.

Ottawa fire service spokesman Marc Messier posted on Twitter that fire crews were working to contain a fuel spill from the damage.

United Airlines did not have any immediate information on the mishap.
