180 passengers evacuated after plane takes wrong turn at KCI

A plane carrying about 180 passengers made a wrong turn onto a service road at Kansas City International Airport this morning and got stuck in mud, prompting the evacuation of passengers.

No one was injured about 6:40 a.m. when the United flight was preparing to depart for Denver in foggy conditions and turned onto the road instead of a taxiway, according to airport officials.

The nose gear and right-side landing gear of the Boeing 757 got stuck in mud. Buses were dispatched to take passengers to the terminal where airline officials were making arrangements to get them to their destinations.
