Michigan Basketball Team Plane Slid Off Runway After Failed Take Off, Everyone is Safe

The plane carrying Michigan’s basketball team to the Big Ten Tournament in Washington, DC was involved in an accident Wednesday afternoon, the university announced in a statement. High winds caused the takeoff to be aborted and the plane slid off the runway after braking violently.

All aboard were safely evacuated and there were no injuries.

The Wolverines, who play Illinois at noon on Thursday, are calling an audible on their travel plans.
