A United Airlines flight from Austin, TX, to Newark, NJ, was diverted to Nashville International Airport on Wednesday after a mechanical issue.

There is no word on what exactly caused the plane, which had 67 people on board, to be diverted to Nashville.

A representative for the airline said a different plane would arrive in Nashville and take the passengers on to Newark.
