Jet Airways’ Passengers Injured in Evacuation

A Jet Airways Boeing 737-800 aircraft enroute from Goa to Mumbai with 154 passengers and seven crewmembers on-board was accelerating for takeoff when the aircraft continued to turn right. The crew rejected takeoff but the aircraft ran off the right runway edge, over soft ground and across a road, coming to a stop with the nose gear collapsed and both engines making ground contact. The aircraft was evacuated with 15 occupants receiving minor injuries.
