Jet rolls off tarmac at O'Hare


An American Eagle jet rolled nose-first off the tarmac at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport Wednesday morning after making a safe landing.

The jet rolled onto a grassy area as the pilot attempted to taxi it to the terminal. No one was hurt, and the 38 passengers and crew on the plane coming from New Orleans were bused to the terminal.

The flight was operated by Republic Airlines and the jet is an Embraer E175.
