A DHL Aero Expreso Boeing 757-200 cargo aircraft operating flight JOS7216, suffered a runway excursion after landing at San José-Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO), Costa Rica. The aircraft took off from SJO runway 07 at 15:36 UTC on a flight bound for Guatemala City.

When at about 60 km north-northeast of SJO, the aircraft turned back and entered a holding pattern to the west of SJO. Unconfirmed reports say the flight crew reported problems with one of the hydraulic systems.

The aircraft landed on runway 07 at 16:25 UTC. ADS-B data and accident video footage suggest that the aircraft began to turn to the right onto taxiway K. It continued the right-hand turn and departed the taxiway. The aircraft crossed an airport road and fell into a grass depression at the side of the road. It broke in two and came to rest.
