A Southwest airplane went off the runway at the Nashville International Airport after landing Tuesday evening.

The Federal Aviation Administration told the Boeing 737 rolled off the taxiway into the grass and got stuck while taxiing to its gate around 5:30 p.m. Central Time. It was coming from Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport.

Passengers were let off the plane via stairs, the FAA says, and bused to the terminal. The emergency slide was also deployed.

The plane stopped by the C concourse by Gate 19 near where most of the planes are de-iced. It appears a wheel either collapsed or a tire may have blown.
