Officials say JetBlue Flight 50 from Savannah, Georgia, briefly skidded when it landed on Monday at 7:15 p.m., the Associated Press reported.

"Once I realized we were going off the runway, I was like, 'uh-oh.' It was like you were going four-wheeling", passenger Terri Given told the outlet.

The plane apparently hit a patch of ice, then spun around as it slid, stopping as it was facing the opposite direction, WCVB reported. He says that forced it to touch down closer the end of the runway. "We just need a tow". "We just skidded on the ice", when talking to air traffic controllers. "And ended up in a snowbank", said Jerry Hokansan, a passenger from Martha's Vineyard. Taxiways are the "roads" that planes use to roll to and from runways. Passengers were jostled, but none were hurt. Firefighters rushed to the scene of the incident to safely guide the passengers off the plane.

As much as three inches of snow had fallen earlier in the day.

Crews worked to clear the runways at Logan Airport Christmas Day during the peak of the snowstorm.

Shortly after 11:30 a.m., crews at Logan were able to dig out and things were able to get moving again.
