There were 13 passengers on the flight, which the Delta Air Lines said was operated by regional carrier Endeavor Air.

Delta said the plane’s nose gear exited the taxiway after landing at the North Carolina airport.

“We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience,” the airline said in a statement.

No injuries were reported. It was not clear what caused the plane to slide off the runway.
