SAN CARLOS -- Two people aboard a single-engine plane escaped uninjured Monday when their aircraft rolled off the end of the tarmac and ended up in some mud, authorities said.

The Columbia LC41 plane had just landed at about 10:15 a.m. when it skidded off the runway and down a small mud embankment at San Carlos Airport. The pilot, whose name was not released, said he brought the plane in too fast, San Mateo County Sheriff's Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt said. Skid marks from the plane's rough landing were visible on the runway, she added.

The two people on board were not hurt, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor.

The plane is registered to Harry Drajpuch of Scottsdale, Ariz., according to FAA records.
