DENVER — An airline spokeswoman said the pilot of a Continental Airlines Boeing 737 that veered off a runway in Denver has been released from a hospital.
Continental spokeswoman Kelly Cripe said today that 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 said he was at the controls on Dec. 20 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.
