Good Morning America
Cargo Plane Overshoots Runway, Ends on Local Road in Italy's Bergamo Airport

A cargo plane overshot a runway at an Italian airport this morning and landed on a nearby highway, according to officials.

The Boeing 737 DHL cargo jet was attempting to land at Italy's Bergamo airport after flying from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris when the aircraft broke through the fence of the runway and ended up on the highway just after 4 a.m., said Italian aviation officials.

The crew consisted of a pilot and co-pilot who were uninjured. No vehicles were on the highway at the time of the incident, according to aviation officials.

The airport near Milan was closed for several hours Friday. The nearby highway also remained closed.

Drivers posted pictures on social media showing the plane's nose partially blocking a roadway with emergency vehicles on the scene.
