Small plane skids off runway into creek at Sugar Land airport

SUGAR LAND, Texas - A small plane skidded off the runway while trying to land at Sugar Land Municipal Airport, police said.

Sugar Land police said the plane slid off the end of the runway and spun around backwards, landing tail end-first into a creek.

The plane had taken off from Hobby airport in Houston.

Police say the woman flying the plane and her passenger who is also a pilot were not hurt in the accident.

Firefighters from the Sugar Land fire department responded along with Sugar Land police. Spokesperson Doug Adolph says there were no hazardous spills, but booms were placed in the creek as a precautionary measure.

At around 1:50 p.m. the runway was reopened and the plane was removed.

The FAA and NTSB will conduct an investigation to see what caused the accident.
