No one was injured and authorities are onsite investigating the crash at the Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie, Minn.

The crash occurred about 9 a.m. Monday, and resulted in the closure of one lane around the airport, KARE 11 said.

The station also reported that the plane took off from Pittsburgh about 7:30 a.m.

It was just the latest plane incident in recent weeks.
