No one was injured Sunday night when a United Express flight made an emergency landing at Central Illinois Regional Airport in Bloomington.

The flight (5228) from Columbia, Mo., to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport "experienced issues" and needed to land at CIRA, airport officials said.

"All passengers and crew are safe," CIRA said late Sunday on Facebook. "We are hosting them in the gate area as they await the arrival of another aircraft to take them to Chicago O’Hare."
