Plane runs off runway at Nevada County Airport; No injuries

The Union Staff

Fire units responded for a reported "aircraft accident" at the Nevada County Airport, according to a release.

At scene, crews found a single-propeller aircraft had skidded off the runway and came to a stop in brush at the west end of the runway. The two occupants were out of the aircraft and reported having no injuries.

Due to leaking fuel, several absorbent pads were placed and environmental health notified. Crews remained at scene approximately 2 and a half hours for a crane to arrive and remove the aircraft.
