A regional airliner with a cracked windshield was diverted to Kansas City's airport and landed safely Tuesday.

No injuries were reported.

United Airlines spokesman Jeff Kovick said United Express Flight 5335 was carrying 66 passengers and four crew members on a flight from St. Louis to Denver.

The windshield was cracked but still in place when the Bombardier CRJ-700 Canadair jetliner reached a gate, said Joe McBride, spokesman for Kansas City International Airport.

Kovick said the airline launched an investigation to find how the windshield broke. He could not say when in the flight the cracks occurred, whether an object struck the windshield, or if any shards of glass came loose in the cockpit.
