RENO, Nev. — Five people were injured when a Delta Airlines flight going to Seattle encountered turbulence and had to make an emergency landing, according to reports.

Tribune-affiliate KCPQ reports a flight out of John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Calif., was diverted to Reno after the crew reported turbulence around 34,000 feet.

Video shows the inside of the plane with items spilled all along the plane’s aisle.

Passengers were expected to be taken to Seattle on another flight, an airline spokesperson told KCPQ.

Three people were taken to the hospital following the emergency landing.
