Plainwell, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities say two persons suffered minor injuries when a small plane ran off a runway at a western Michigan airport.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro says the Cessna C177 was landing at Plainwell Municipal Airport about 35 miles south of Grand Rapids when it went off the runway Friday afternoon.

Allegan County Sheriff's Cpt. Scott Matice says the pilot and one of three passengers were transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

Matice says the plane came to rest in a ditch along U.S. 131 but did not impact road traffic.

Molinaro says the FAA will investigate the crash. He says the single-engine plane registered to Wyoming, Michigan-based Green Falcons Inc. sustained substantial damage.
