    A Southwest Airlines jet slid off a taxiway at Denver International Airport on Saturday amid light snowfall and freezing temperatures.

    DIA spokeswoman Jenny Schiavone confirmed that the aircraft slid off the taxiway shortly after 5 p.m.

    125 passengers and five crew members were onboard.

    Dallas-based Southwest reported on its blog post about the incident that there were no reports of injuries.

    Schiavone says passengers of Flight 1905 were bused from the taxiway to the concourse.

    The Denver-bound Boeing 737 had departed Saturday afternoon from Metropolitan Oakland International in California.

    Schiavone says flight schedules and overall DIA operations were not disrupted following the incident.

    Further details were not immediately available.
