No injuries after small plane runs off West Virginia runway

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A small plane failed to maneuver a turn and ran off a runway in West Virginia.

The Charleston Gazette Mail reports there were no injuries in the Friday morning incident. Yeager Airport spokeswoman Dominique Ranieri says the plane carrying two adults made a successful landing, but undershot the turn onto the taxiway.

Ranieri describes the incident as minor and says it didn’t affect operations at the airport. She says the plane’s wing clipped a sign along the runway, but no other substantial damage to the airport facility was reported.

Damage to the plane also appeared superficial, but it was towed to a hangar to make a more detailed inspection.
