RIA Novosti. Alexey Kudenko
A passenger plane overshot the runaway at Moscow's Domodedovo airport on Sunday, but no one was hurt in the incident, a police spokesman said. 

The Boeing-737 landed at about 12.35 p.m. local time on a flight from Rhodes, Greece. No injuries were reported among 170 passengers and seven crew members. 

A police spokesman said the aircraft has landed "in the grass." The passengers are being evacuated. 

The Domodedovo airport works in a normal regime, a spokesman said adding that no flights have been delayed and no one has sought medical help. The aircraft was towed off the runway at 15.25 p.m. local time. 

In December, a Red Wings Tu-204 airliner overshot the runway at Vnukovo Airport outside Moscow and crashed into a main highway, splitting into three pieces and killing five people on board and injuring the other three.
