Firefighters said a plane apparently skidded off a runway, but no one was injured or needed to be taken to a hospital. A call to the DuPage Airport Authority was not immediately returned.

A West Chicago fire truck that responds to crashes remained on the scene about 5:30 p.m., standing by as the DuPage Airport Authority removed the plane and returned it to the runway.
