WTAE in Pittsburgh reporting a US Airways Express Saab 340 lost steering control and ran off the runway (could be a taxiway) at PIT. The flight was 4929, PIT-JHW, operated by Colgan Air. No word on injuries or anything.

Doesn't say what it was in the article. But the only MX item I can think of on that A/C that would cause an air return is a hydraulic problem. Given that I would have probably opted not to attempt a post arrival taxi.
Have to call some of my old Colgan peeps and see what they know.

I was walking to A concourse and noticed firetrucks and maintenance crews surrounded the aircraft. I didn't know what was going on. It was off a taxiway near the US Airways hangers. Glad there was no injuries.
