    Officials say a pilot and three passengers suffered minor injuries when a United Express regional jet slid off a slippery runway in northern Maine and came to rest in deep snow.

    Images from the scene Monday showed firefighters helping to evacuate passengers from the 50-seat Embraer 145 at the Presque Island International Airport. At least a couple of inches of snow had fallen.

    Officials said the flight operated by CommutAir from Newark, New Jersey, with 28 passengers and three crew members landed at the airport at 11:30 a.m. Monday.
