MORE than 40 passengers were taken to hospital today after an American Airlines flight overshot a runway in Jamaica.
- 91 light injuries in Jamaica air crash: Minister
MORE than 40 passengers were taken to hospital today after an American Airlines flight overshot a runway in Jamaica.

The plane from Miami stopped safely and there were no immediate reports of fatalities.

Airlines spokesman Charley Wilson said all passengers were off Flight 331, which took off from Miami International Airport at 8.52pm yesterday and was due to arrive at Norman Manley International Airport at 10.27pm local time.

He said it was almost a full flight. Normally a flight carries 140 passengers plus the crew.

Kingston policeman O'Neil Hinds said officers at the scene reported that the plane ran off the end of the runway.

The flight from Miami was carrying 148 passengers and 6 crew members, the airline said.

“The injured passengers have been taken to the Kingston Public Hospital,” Information Minister Daryl Vaz told the Jamaica Observer. “There are no reports of fatalities.”

Additional details were not available, but passengers at the airport told local media that the plane attempted to land in heavy rain when the crash occurred.

Kingston Policeman Oneil Hinds at police headquarters said officers at the scene reported the plane ran off the end of the runway. He said the plane was damaged but did not break apart.

The flight originated in Washington, D.C., before going on to Miami.

“The plane crashed and broke almost in front of me,” passenger Naomi Palmer told the Jamaica Observer. Palmer also said she was in some pain.

Emergency vehicle sirens could be heard as she spoke via cell phone.
