American Airlines Flight Crashes at Jamaica Airport

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

BREAKING NEWS — An American Airlines plane carrying 152 people skidded off the runway and broke in two Tuesday night after landing in Kingston, Jamaica, injuring at least 40 people, according to local news reports.
Airline spokesman Charley Wilson said in a short statement there were no immediate reports of fatalities in the crash that occured about 10:22 p.m. local time Tuesday.
The plane was carrying 145 passengers and 7 crew members, an operations coordinator at Norman Manley International Airport said.
Additional details were not available, but passengers at the airport told local media that Flight 331 had just arrived from Miami in heavy rain when the crash occurred.
The flight was reported to have originated in Washington, D.C.
An airport official said the plane overshot the runway and persons were being evacuated, with some sent to hospital.
"The plane crashed and broke almost in front of me," said passenger Naomi Palmer to the Jamaica Observer. Palmer said she was in some pain.
