A Fly Jamaica Boeing 757-200 aircraft overshot the runway at Guyana's main global airport early Friday, injuring several people.

The Fly Jamaica Airways plane was bound for Toronto when it suffered a hydraulic problem shortly after takeoff and returned to the airport, crashing and careening off the runway, Transportation Minister David Patterson said.

Six people were reported injured and pictures show substantial damage to the starboard wing and engine.

"They are all stable and are being looked at", Patterson said, adding that all the passengers and crew on board had been accounted for with "no reports of any broken bones or such".

There were 118 adults and two infants aboard as well as eight crew members made up of six Guyanese and two Jamaicans.

Flight departed Guyana at 2:10 AM and at 2:21 minutes, pilot indicated "there was some hydraulic problem and he requested permission to return and he did", the minister said.

"There were (some people) injured because of coming down the slide or not getting off the flight fast enough, so the people behind them were kicking them", he told Canada's public broadcaster CBC.

The airport said on its Facebook page that the injuries were considered to be non-life-threatening.

"I am all safe, but shaking", he wrote in a Facebook post.

On landing, the emergency services were activated and since then an investigator from the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority has taken responsibility for the crash site.
