 The crashed plane


A passenger jet has rolled off an airport runway and crashed into an embankment in Atlanta, in the US.

Two maintenance workers were testing the engines on the Delta 737 in the early hours when the brakes failed and the plane began to move, according to airline spokesman, Eric Torgenson.

It ended up on its side after smashing into the nearby embankment at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, reports Sky News.

No passengers were on board. The extent of the damage is not yet known.

A nearby runway was closed while crews worked to move the plane.
