Commuter Jet Makes Emergency Landing in Atlanta

A Delta Air Lines spokeswoman says a small Atlantic Southeast Airlines jet made an emergency landing at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport after the landing gear malfunctioned.

Delta spokeswoman Kate Modolo says the CRJ-200 Canadair commuter flight was on its way from Columbus, Ga., to Atlanta. She says it landed safely at about 6:30 p.m. A witness says the left landing gear appeared to have collapsed.

She says the plane carried 19 passengers and a three-member crew. She says the passengers are being accommodated.
