Officials say the pilot of a single-engine plane was uninjured after he missed a grassy rural runway and landed on U.S. Highway 76 in South Carolina.
Florence County sheriff's Capt. Mike Nunn told the Morning News of Florence that pilot Phillip Brown of Sanford, N.C., attempted to land Sunday at Huggins Memorial Airport.
No traffic on the road was involved in the crash but the highway was closed Sunday afternoon as the plane was removed and aviation fuel was cleaned up.
The newspaper reported that the plane is a Cirrus SR22 and is owned by Norma One LLC based in Charleston.
Nunn said the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the crash.
