The inbound flight from Chicago O'Hare International Airport reportedly ran off the end of the runway while landing Wednesday morning local time.  No injuries were reported among the 181 passengers and crew aboard the jetliner.

The plane came to rest 350 feet past the runway overrun area in hard-packed snow.  It was apparently snowing at the time of the incident.  No damage to the aircraft has been reported.

The Federal Aviation Association, Boeing, the  Allied Pilots Association and American Airlines have all agreed to participate in the investigation into the botched landing.
