Plane from New York blows tyres


Authorities say a United Express plane from western New York has blown four tyres as it landed at Newark Liberty International Airport and veered off a runway.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Ron Marsico says Flight 4480 from Rochester was landing on Sunday night in New Jersey when several rear tyres blew. He tells the Star-Ledger that the plane veered onto a taxiway and didn't strike anything.

The plane was carrying eight passengers and five crew members. No one was hurt.

It wasn't immediately clear what caused the tyres to blow.

ExpressJet was operating the flight. Its spokeswoman tells WNYW-NY that the passengers were bused to the terminal.
