CHICAGO (CBS) -- An American Eagle flight from Little Rock, Arkansas, to Chicago was diverted to St. Louis on Saturday, due to a possible mechanical issue.

An American Airlines spokeswoman said American Eagle flight 4474, operated by Envoy Air, landed safely in St. Louis around 11:50 a.m.

Fifty passengers and three crew were on board at the time, and no injuries were reported. Passengers were bused to the terminal, and will board another plane to finish their trip to O'Hare International Airport on Saturday afternoon.

Meantime, maintenance crews will inspect the plane that had an apparent mechanical problem.

"We never want to disrupt our customers' travel plans, and we are sorry for the trouble this caused," American spokeswoman Gianna Urgo said in an email.
