An airplane carrying at least 150 people has crashed into a gas station and burst into flames after landing at Sao Paulo’s airport, the AP has reported. There were no immediate reports of injuries or deaths.

The Tam airline’s Airbus-320 skidded off the runway, then crossed a busy road at the height of rush hour in South America’s largest city before slamming into the gas station.

TV footage showed flames shooting into the sky and clouds of black smoke billowing into the air after the crash.
