— A small plane ran off a runway at Raleigh-Durham International Airport early Wednesday, an airport representative said.

Two people were on board the plane, but no one was injured in the incident, which occurred shortly before 4 a.m.

The nose of the twin-engine Cheyenne aircraft went into mud beside the runway. A light on the taxiway was damaged.

An airport representative said wet weather might have been a factor in the incident, but the cause hasn't yet been determined.
