(DALLAS) — An American Airlines jet slid off a taxiway after landing at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport late Monday.

Flight 296 from San Antonio to Dallas was taxiing to the terminal  around 8 p.m. CT when part of the aircraft slipped off the runway and onto the grass, according to American Airlines spokesperson Andrea Huguely.

None of the 63 passengers or five crew members on board were injured, according to Huguely.

All of the passengers were taken off the aircraft and to the terminal on a bus.

Due to the mixture of sleet and ice in the area, the airline believes the incident was probably related to weather, but they are still investigating to determine the cause.
