ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — A Delta jet headed to Atlanta has slid off a taxiway at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. No one was hurt.

Delta Air Lines spokesman Morgan Durrant  says the plane "may have hit some black ice," before sliding from the taxiway on to a grassy area around 6:40 a.m. Monday.

Durrant says all 180 passengers safely got off the plane and have been re-booked on a flight scheduled to take off later in the day.

The passengers have been taken back to the terminal by bus.

Durrant says Delta technicians are working to move and inspect the aircraft.
