Some passengers aboard a Southwest flight from Los Angeles had a less-than-smooth arrival this morning in Denver. Flight 792 managed to knock over a light pole on its way to the gate, say airport officials in the Mile-High City, reports TheDenverChannel.com.

"I was just in a plane crash!! Seriously. The pilot [h]it a light pole @ Denver International Airport (DEN)," Tweeted Santa Barbara resident Hilary Handtmann.

An airport spokesperson added that no one aboard the aircraft was injured, and there were no disruptions to service at the airport or for other flights. The passengers were taken off the plane and bused to the gate.
