Heavy turbulence injured 10 people, including two flight attendants, on a United flight bound for Chicago flight early Monday, the airline said.

Flight 1028 was diverted to Denver International Airport at about 3 a.m. and the eight passengers and two flight attendants were taken to Denver hospitals, the airline said. Their conditions have not been released.

The Boeing 757 was carrying 187 passengers and crew when it left Los Angeles.

The airline says maintenance crews inspected and cleared the plane and it completed the flight to Chicago.
