(FOX NEWS) – A plane carrying Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence slid off the runway while landing at New York City’s Laguardia Airport Thursday evening.

There was no immediate word of any injuries.

The aircraft, a Boeing 737, tore up two tracks of concrete on the runway before coming to rest on a patch of grass.

“We seemed to be sliding for the distance of the landing and a burning smell became very obvious — like rubber,” Fox News producer Dan Gallo wrote in an email.

According to Gallo, Pence said that he saw mud on windows at the front of the plane when he came to check on passengers in the rear of the aircraft.

“We can see mud on the front windows,” a calm Pence said in the press cabin about a minute after the plane came to rest. He said he felt fine.
