A plane skidded off the runway at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on Wednesday after landing safely. The jet was taxiing to the terminal but rolled nose-first off the tarmac and onto a grassy area, The Associated Press reported.

Authorities say no one on the American Eagle jet was injured, but the aircraft's 38 passengers and four crew members had to be bused to the terminal.

American spokeswoman Mary Frances Fagan says Flight 4332 from New Orleans "landed normally and safely," but that the plane's front-end nose gear rolled onto the grass as it began to taxi.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Will Knight says crews responded but that no one was injured or transported to hospitals.

The flight was operated by Republic Airlines. A Republic spokesman didn't immediately respond to a call seeking information.

The plane is an Embraer E175.
