FREDERICTON, New Brunswick (AP) _ An Air Canada jet skidded off a runway into a group of trees while landing in thick fog at New Brunswick's capital, injuring more than 30 people.

Thirty-five of the 42 people aboard the plane were rushed to a hospital after the crash late Tuesday, and eight remained hospitalized today, said Air Canada president Lamar Durrett.

Among the injured were several passengers who were pinned in their seats by the crash. Other shaken passengers made their way off the plane and waded through waist-deep snow to reach the airport, a half-mile away.

Several of the injured suffered broken limbs, but none of the injuries were life-threatening, according to officials at Dr. Everett Chambers Hospital.

The jet had 39 passengers _ two of them infants _ and three crew members on the flight from Toronto.
