Plane Skids Off Runway at LaGuardia Airport, Crashes Into Fence

A passenger jet skidded off a runway at LaGuardia Airport and crashed into a fence as it tried to land amid a blinding wintry mix Thursday morning, sparking a fuel leak in one of its wings and prompting evacuations, Port Authority officials and sources familiar with the situation tell NBC 4 New York. 
At least 125 passengers, including Giants tight end Larry Donnell, and five crew members were on Delta flight 1086, an MD-88 headed to New York from Atlanta, Georgia, when it slid off the runway around 11 a.m., authorities said. Two dozen people reported minor injuries, according to the FDNY, and three of those people were taken to the hospital.
