CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A small private plane skidded off the taxiway at Yeager Airport in Charleston.

Multiple news outlets report the plane went off into the grass toward the end of the taxiway Wednesday night.

Yeager Airport spokesman Mike Plante says planes usually turn to the left when they turn onto the runway, but the plane turned to the right and got stuck in the mud.

Plante says the two passengers on board were not injured.

He says the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate to determine what caused the plane to depart from the taxiway.

Plante added that an incident such as this is highly unusual.
