MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A SkyWest Airlines flight has reached its destination in Salt Lake City after sliding off the main runway at Montana’s Missoula International Airport, as freezing rain was reported in the area.

SkyWest spokeswoman Marissa Snow says the nose gear of the Canadair regional jet went off the side of the runway as it was taxiing out just after 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

No one on Delta Connection Flight 4600 was injured. Snow says the 44 passengers and three crew members were bused back to the airport while mechanics determined the plane was not damaged. Snow says the plane took off at about 11:20 a.m. and arrived in Salt Lake City at 12:30 p.m.

The National Weather Service had issued a winter weather advisory for freezing rain Tuesday morning.
