The Dornier 328-110, N335PH ran off the side of runway 2, during the landing roll, and collided with a runway identification sign at the Portland International Airport, Oregon. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time. The airplane was substantially damaged and there were no injuries. The flight originated from Redding, California, one hour and 17 minutes prior to the accident.
The captain reported that the first officer was the flying pilot for the fifth and final flight leg for the day into Portland. A routine visual approach to runway 2 was performed. Touchdown was described as normal and on runway centerline. The captain stated that after the nose wheel touched down, the airplane began a gradual veer to the left. At this time, the captain called for "his airplane" and took control of the airplane above 60 knots, by placing his feet on the rudder pedals, right hand on the power levers, and left hand on the tiller. The captain re-aligned the airplane to centerline and called for the condition levers to "min." At this time, the airplane began to veer more quickly to the left. The captain attempted to correct the situation and stated that "my feeling at that point was that I was not in control of the aircraft in terms of being able to keep it on the runway." The captain stated that he saw the yellow wig-wag sign and increased the left turn to avoid striking the sign. The aircraft tilted to the right and missed the yellow sign, however, before the airplane came to a stop, it struck a runway identification sign. After the engines were secured, the captain told the flight attendant to keep the passengers seated so that he could assess the extent of aircraft damage and assure passenger safety. The first officer remained in the cockpit and made a brief transmission to the control tower to report their situation.
