Part of Flying Cloud Drive is closed after a plane went off the runway at the Flying Cloud airport on Tuesday night.
The highway was closed between Pioneer Trail and the airport until about 10 p.m. It has since reopened.
Officials say a fixed wing, single-engine Cirrus SR20 aircraft was landing when it went through a fence. Investigators are still trying to determine what went wrong.
The pilot was the only person on board at the time, and he said he simply could not stop the plane. No injuries have been reported.
FlightAware.com, which provides live flight tracking online, reported that the plane took off from Des Moines International at 4:23 p.m. on Tuesday Afternoon and was supposed to land at the Airlake Airport in Lakeville at 5:49 p.m. It is unclear if the plane made that stop.
FAA investigators are on the scene.
