United jetliner with 1 engine out lands safely

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.— The Federal Aviation Administration says a United Airlines 757 with one of its two engines shut down has landed safely at Grand Junction Regional Airport in western Colorado.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says the plane was flying from Denver to Los Angeles on Sunday when the right engine shut down and the aircraft was diverted to Grand Junction. The cause of the problem was unknown. The plane landed around 11:44 a.m.

A United spokesman said he was checking on the report but had no information immediately.

The number of people on board wasn't immediately available.
