MADISON, Wis. (WTAQ) - About 60 passengers escaped injury Monday, when an incoming plane slid off a taxiway and into the snow at Madison's airport.  

Kim Jones of the Dane County Regional Airport said Delta Flight 385 from Minneapolis had just landed around 4 p.m. and was taxiing when it left its paved runway.  

Passengers were removed from the Boeing 737-800 aircraft, and taken to the terminal. The airport was closed for about an hour, so a second runway could be cleared.
