BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Severe turbulence during a United Airlines flight from Denver to Billings, Mont., sent five people to hospitals in Montana.

United Airlines spokesman Luke Punzenberger tells The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/1fuGKPO ) that three crew members and two passengers were injured Monday. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor told the Billings Gazette that the captain declared a medical emergency as the Boeing 737 approached Billings.

Gregor says Flight 1676 left Denver International Airport around noon and landed without incident just before 1:30 p.m. at Billings Logan International Airport.

Punzenberger says one flight attendant remained in the hospital late Monday. He says 114 passengers and five crew members were aboard.

American Medical Response and the Billings airport fire department responded.
