CHARLOTTE, N.C. —Two flight attendants and a passenger were injured on Tuesday during a turbulent flight from Charlotte to St. Louis.

US Airways flight 1667 experienced the significant turbulence about 70 miles north of Nashville.

Emergency vehicles surrounded a plane on the tarmac at Lambert International Airport in St. Louis when it landed at 9 p.m. Tuesday.

While all passengers were seated at the time, the flight attendants were not.

According to officials, the two flight attendants were treated on the scene.

But one passenger was transported to the hospital with what were described as minor injuries, according to KSDK-TV, the NBC affiliate in St. Louis.

Officials with US Airways said the plane, an Airbus 319, will get a routine check to see if there was any damage.
