Syracuse, New York -- A pilot aborted a takeoff Sunday morning at Syracuse Hancock International Airport, and the plane went off the runway, according to airport officials.

The Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche with only the pilot onboard went into a grassy area off the side of runway 15-33, airport officials said at about 10 a.m. There were no injuries reported and the airport is expected to reopen soon.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the incident, said FAA spokeswoman Crystal Essiaw.

The call for a plane off a runway came in at 8:28 a.m. Sunday, according to police dispatchers.

By 9 a.m., emergency lights could be seen on a runway southeast of the terminal. The airport has been using its southeast-northwest backup runway while reconstruction work is underway on its main runway, which runs east-west.

A departing American Airlines flight (operated by subsidiary Piedmont) to Philadelphia left the gate as scheduled at 8:16 a.m., but flight tracker FlightAware showed that it was still on the ground by 10:15 a.m.

The last departure from the airport was an American Airlines flight to Charlotte, North Carolina, that took off at 8:07 a.m.
