PEORIA, Ill. (Associated Press) -

A United Express flight from St. Louis to Chicago made an emergency landing in Peoria after the cabin lost air pressure.

Gene Olson is the director of General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport. He told the Journal Star that United Flight 3642 landed in Peoria just before noon.

Olson didn't know what the problem was but said the landing was precautionary and without incident. No one was injured.

It wasn't clear how many passengers were on board the flight. Olson said a second plane was on the way to take them to Chicago. It was expected to depart around 3 p.m.

The flight was operated by GoJet Airlines of Bridgetown, Mo., for United. GoJet's website says it flies CRJ700 regional jets for United Express and Delta Connection.
