"CLEVELAND, Ohio (CNN) – A passenger jet skidded off a runway and smashed through a fence while landing Sunday in windy and icy conditions at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

But none of the 70 passengers and four crew members were injured, an FAA spokeswoman said.

Shuttle America Flight 6448, which had taken off from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, was landing in Cleveland at 3:14 p.m. when it left the end of Runway 28 and crashed through the fence, FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown said."
