An Iranian passenger plane with 135 people on board has skidded off the runway and onto a road with its wheels still retracted.

The incident occured in the Iranian city of Mahshahr. Caspian Airlines Flight 6936 departed from the capital city, Tehran, early Monday and was set to land at Mahshahr Airport, in the country's southwest.

The plane instead skidded onto Mahshahr-e-Ahwaz highway, Iranian news agency Fars reported, blocking traffic and pedestrians on either side of the road.

Caspian Airlines is based in Tehran. Its last major accident was in 2009, when a commercial flight crashed outside the city of Qazvin in northwestern Iran. All 153 passengers and 15 crew members on board died, making it one of the deadliest aviation accidents in the country's history.

This incident is under investigation.
