Plane skids off runway

An aircraft with 10 people aboard has skidded off an airport runway in Abbotsford.

Airport general manager Parm Sidhu says efforts are underway to confirm what happened but no one was seriously hurt.

Sidhu says two people were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, two had minor injuries and the remaining six aboard were not hurt.

A tweet from BC Emergency Health Services meanwhile, says they transported eight patients to the hospital in stable condition. 

The airport says in a statement that the plane was a King Air twin-engine aircraft.

A snowfall warning was issued Friday for the airport area in the Fraser Valley and the forecast calls for up to 20 centimetres of snow, but it's unclear if weather was a factor in the incident.

The statement says the Transportation Safety Board will investigate the incident.
