A spokeswoman says the pilot of a Continental Airlines jetliner that veered off a runway in Denver has been released from a hospital, the AP reports. Continental's Kelly Cripe said today the plane's captain and one other person were released from the University of Colorado Hospital. Cripe wouldn't discuss the pilot's injuries.
Authorities say he was at the controls last Saturday when the Houston-bound plane left the runway and slid into a shallow ravine about 2,000 feet away. Investigators haven't released a cause for the accident. Thirty-eight of the 115 passengers and crew members were injured. Two remained hospitalized in fair condition today.
