No injuries are reported after a private cargo plane ran off the runway at Colorado Springs Airport.

Assistant director of operations John McGinley says a wheel brake locked up and the plane rolled onto the grass. He says the aircraft is a Swearingen Metroliner, a 60-foot-long twin-engine aircraft.
McGinley says mechanics are trying to fix the brakes and pull the plane back onto the runway. He says airport operations were not affected.
