Delta 757 Slides off Detroit Runway

A Delta 757 slid off the runway today at Detroit's Wayne County Metropolitan Airport after arriving from Las Vegas. Delta 753 was carrying over 150 people when it couldn't turn onto a taxiway in time, and ended up sliding into the grass. It isn't known exactly what caused the incident but Detroit was experiencing snow at the time it occurred. The aircraft didn't appear to be damaged at all and no injuries were reported. Passengers had to wait until the plane could be towed out of the grass and to the gate. The entire ordeal lasted just under 3 hours.
