According to the publication, the aircraft involved in the incident “rolled out without further incident” and there were no reported injuries, despite the aircraft sustaining substantial damage. Argentina’s transportation safety board ruled it an accident and opened an investigation after the airline reported passengers and crews disembarked safely.
