CHICAGO (CBS)– A plane slid off the runway overnight at the Chicago Executive Airport in northwest suburban Wheeling.

Fire crews were called before just midnight to be on standby for a plane in distress. When the plane landed, it slid off the runway and hit a fence, causing the wing to strike a pole. This caused aviation fuel to leak.
