The airplane incurred minor damage during a landing overrun at 1334 Eastern time. The two airline transport pilots, one flight attendant and eight passengers were not injured. Instrument conditions prevailed.

Before landing, the pilots programmed the flight management system with the current winds and temperature, which provided landing distance and reference speed (ref) of 136 knots. The approach was briefed and the pilots elected to add 10 knots to the ref speed due to the wind conditions and executed the localizer approach for Runway 6, (6013 feet by 150 feet).

After experiencing gusts on short final, the airplane touched down at 120 knots and the copilot stated a red crew advisory system (CAS) message generated for ground spoiler deployment. Thrust reversers then deployed and braking began immediately, with activation of the anti-skid system. At that point the airplane was decelerating through 80 knots, and the pilots still felt the airplane would stop on the remaining runway. However, the airplane departed the end of the runway at 40 to 50 knots and traveled about 100 feet into an engineered materials arresting system located immediately beyond the runway before coming to rest.

According to an FAA inspector, review of airport surveillance video indicated the airplane touched down about 2250 feet before the departure end of Runway 6. Observed weather at 1334 included wind from 360 degrees at 12 knots, gusts to 19 knots, three miles visibility in light rain and a broken ceiling at 600 feet.
