American Airlines Overshot Runway In Jamaica

According to Jamaica’s Civil Aviation Authority, the American Airlines Boeing 737 that crash-landed at the international airport in Kingston overshot the runway. The flight originated at Washington’s Regan National Airport and has stopped in Miami, Florida before traveling on to Jamaica.

The airliner was going about 300 kilometers (about 186 miles) per hour when its wheels touched the runway and then bounced as it tried to stop. The crash-landing caused the fuselage to crack open and the engines to detach from the aircraft on impact.

Several of the 154 passengers and crew were injured, but there were no fatalities in the incident.
