No one was injured today when a small plane veered off the end of the runway at an airport in Detroit.

The pilot said there was a steering problem as he landed the Merlin aircraft at Coleman A. Young International Airport, formerly Detroit City Airport, on Conner at about 5 a.m. today, Detroit Fire Department Senior Chief Lewis Roelans said.

The twin-turboprop, multi-passenger plane went off the end of the runway. But neither the pilot nor the other person onboard were hurt.

It was unclear where the plane's flight originated, Roelans said.
