Plane with 145 on board overshoots Chicago runway; one injured

A Mexicana Airlines flight overshot a runway while landing at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport Friday night and struck a safety barrier, injuring a flight attendant, authorities said. Flight 802 was arriving from Mexico City just after 7 p.m. local time when it was stopped by a barrier of lightweight, crushable concrete blocks, authorities said. The safety barrier, known as an arrestor bed, was specifically installed to stop planes that overshoot runways, said Department of Aviation spokeswoman Karen Pride. "The good news is the safety enhancements that we had in place worked perfectly and things are OK out there," she said.
