From Live ATC pilot communication "somehow we lost control" for a second there, either braking or steering, could have been a thrust reverser issue or brake possibly

Gotta love the lack of pertinent details. Aviation reporting has always always bad, but this is pathetic.

Was there weather involved? What kind? TRW? F? Rain++ Giant rocks falling from the skies?
No photos?
How was the wing damaged? Runway light? Vehicle? Sasquatch?

Oh, it happened, I live in Dayton. Daylight, clear skies, 'no weather', so to speak. Local news reached out to the operator, Air Wisconsin, who have not responded in any way shape or form. NTSB is reportedly leading the investigation at this point. Passenger reports are that the plane veered off the runway not long after touchdown.

Landing long and too hot (fast) are the most common mistakes. Sometimes add to that a downwind landing.

Just too many of these incidents over the years.

With so many long runways, it's easy for a pilot to get complacent.
