Three passengers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries Tuesday night after a United Airlines flight made an emergency landing at Dulles International Airport, the airline said.

United Express 7512 from Houston, Texas, had to make the emergency landing at Dulles with its nose gear still up, said United spokeswoman Megan McCarthy.

The flight was carrying four crew members and 56 passengers, who were evacuated from the aircraft on the runway.

Also Tuesday, a United Express flight from Chicago overran the runway at Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee, said Tony Yaron, the airport’s manager. No injuries were reported.

There were 44 passengers and three crew members aboard the CRJ 200 regional jet. Mosinee is about 130 miles north of Madison.
