A Southwest Airlines flight skidded off a taxiway and into some grass after landing in Denver on Saturday night, according to multiple passengers via Twitter. None of the 125 passengers aboard Southwest Flight 1905 from Oakland were injured.

In addition to the seemingly calm nature of the tweeting passengers, sources tell NYCAviation that the incident seems to be minor and no one was injured.
