ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) - A Delta jet has slid off an icy taxiway at Detroit Metro Airport.

A Delta spokesman said that none of the 160 passengers or six crew members were injured in the Saturday morning accident.

The plane had just arrived from Portland, Oregon, and was taxiing slowly to the terminal when it slid into the grass, says Delta spokesman Anthony Black.

Passengers have been taken to the terminal on buses. It’s uncertain whether the Boeing 737-800 was damaged or when it might fly again. Black says maintenance crews will inspect the plane.

Flights were grounded for a couple hours Saturday morning at the airport in the suburb of Romulus because of ice covering the airfield. An airport spokesman says all parallel runways have reopened and flights have resumed.
