WASHINGTON (AP) -- Officials say a plane leaving Reagan National Airport veered off the runway and its wheels got stuck in the mud.

Delta spokeswoman Sarah Lora said Delta Flight 1763 bound for Minneapolis was trying to enter the runway when the right gear left the pavement. She said the gear was stuck in about 12 inches of mud.

Lora says that 160 passengers got off the plane and were bused to the terminal. No injuries were reported.

The spokeswoman said passengers were put on another flight that left Reagan about 7:30 p.m.
