    Authorities say no one was injured when a small business jet carrying seven people skidded off a suburban Chicago runway during heavy snow.

    The plane veered off the taxiway during takeoff at the DuPage Airport around 2:30 p.m. on Monday, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

    Dennis Keefe is the deputy fire chief in West Chicago. He says the pilot likely became disoriented during whiteout conditions. The community that's about 30 miles from Chicago received about five inches of snow on Monday.

    Keefe said the plane wasn't damaged.

    The FAA said the plane, with five passengers and two crew members, was heading to Baltimore.
