An ASL Airlines Hungary Boeing 737 owned freighter overshot a runway and crash-landed on a road just outside the Orio al Serio International Airport in Italy this morning.

The aircraft was arriving in Bergamo at around 4am local time from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. No passengers or crew were injured in the accident.

The 737 freighter was being operated by DHL and media reports in Italy claim that the incident occurred as a result of bad weather in the region.
