No injuries in plane crash at Eden Prairie airport

Share story

A small business jet overshot the runway just before 10 a.m. Monday at Flying Cloud airport in Eden Prairie.

"We understand there were no injuries. There's no one transported at all to the hospital. There were two pilots, a pilot and a co-pilot on board and no passengers," Metropolitan Airports Commission spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski said. 

The plane was making a landing but couldn't stop at the end of the runway. It went through a fence at the airport perimeter and stopped traffic on Flying Cloud Drive. The airport did not close after the crash and flights continued to be able to take off and land, Scovronski added.
