WASHINGTON (AP) — An official says 78-year-old U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had to slide down an emergency chute to evacuate a flight at Dulles International Airport.

A Supreme Court spokeswoman, Patricia McCabe Estrada, says Ginsburg was on her way to San Francisco on the Wednesday afternoon flight and was not injured.

Airport spokeswoman Kimberly Gibbs says the United Airlines flight was on the taxiway around 1 p.m. when the pilot noticed a problem with the engine. Gibbs says passengers used emergency chutes to exit.

United spokesman Mike Trevino says one person was injured but he didn't have other details.

Trevino says 179 passengers and six crew members were aboard.
