A Skywest Airlines Canadair CRJ-200 on behalf of United, registration N965SW performing flight UA-5069 from Victoria,TX to Houston Intercontinental,TX (USA) with 13 passengers and 3 crew, landed on Houston's runway 08R (tower reported winds from 120 degrees at 13 knots) at 14:19L (19:19Z) maintaining routine communication but veered off right off the runway on landing and came to a stop with all gear on soft ground about 1450 meters/4750 feet down the runway. Tower alerted emergency services at that point telling them the aircraft was on the grass between taxiways NK and J (editorial note: the aircraft came to a stop on the grass between taxiways NH, NK, NA and NJ). The crew advised emergency services, everything on board was fine, no damage, no indications, no injuries, they had shut down the engines and were operating the APU, no evacuation intended/needed, everybody was calm in the cabin, they just needed to get out and taxi to the apron, they kept the doors closed to keep cool in the aircraft. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained minor if any damage. The main door was eventually opened and the passengers disembarked normally onto the grass via the aircraft stairs.

The airline reported the aircraft experienced a steering issue and rolled off the runway at the end of its landing run.

The FAA reported: "AIRCRAFT LANDED AND VEERED OFF RUNWAY INTO THE GRASS, HOUSTON, TX.", the damage was "UNKNOWN" and the occcurrence was rated an incident.

On Jan 26th 2023 the NTSB reported the aircraft damage was minor, the occurrence was rated an incident and is being investigated by the NTSB.
