SAVANNAH, Ga. -

Delta Air Lines apologized to passengers arriving in Savannah after a jet veered off a runway and ended up in a grassy area.

Delta said in a statement that it apologizes for the inconvenience caused by the Tuesday evening incident at Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.

No injuries were reported among the 125 passengers or crew members.

Authorities say the DC-9 aircraft was arriving from Atlanta around 6:45 p.m. when the plane's front wheel made the initial contact with the grass as the plane turned onto a taxiway at the end of a runway. Eventually the entire plane ended up in the grass.

Airport spokeswoman Lori Lynah tells The Savannah Morning News that everyone aboard was able to safely exit the plane.
