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.

Airport spokesman Brian Lassaline says the plane was towed to a Delta hangar and didn't appear damaged.

He says conditions were wet, and the surface temperature dropped overnight. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.

Lassaline says there were no other disruptions to flights at the Romulus airfield Monday.
