Slick conditions: Plane slips off Madison runway; overnight traffic jam on I-94


No one was injured when a Delta jet from Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport landed in Madison and slipped off the taxiway in snowy conditions at about 4 p.m. Monday, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

The plane stopped in the snow just after exiting the main runway, the newspaper reports. “It just kept going straight,” one passenger told the Journal. “You felt that it was skidding.”

The 60 passengers were bused to the terminal about 45 minutes after the incident. The Journal has images of emergency responders at work at the scene.

In other news, traffic was jammed up for much of the evening Monday into Tuesday morning as emergency crews worked through the night to clear eastbound I-94 near the Hudson Bridge, the Star Tribune reports. The snares started after several crashes left some injured, starting with a vehicle that spun out at about 9 p.m., causing a semitrailer to jackknife, hit a guardrail and tip over. It was reportedly hauling 40,000 pounds of seafood, the Star Tribune reported. One eastbound lane was finally opened at about 11:45 p.m. to allow traffic to begin to flow again, the newspaper reported.

State highway officials warned people to slow down as slick conditions persisted through Tuesday morning in various places around the state.

Among other crashes, the State Patrol on Tuesday morning was investigating a serious injury accident southwest of the metro on Minnesota Highway 19 between Gaylord and Winthrop.

In another crash in Olmsted County a little after 4 a.m. Tuesday, a 51-year-old Wisconsin man was injured in a rollover accident on Interstate 90.
