SAN JOSE (KRON) — Emergency crews are responding to a small plane crash in San Jose Wednesday morning.

The plane rolled off the runway at the Reid-Hillview Airport near Tully Road and South King Road at around 11:20 a.m., according to authorities.

The plane went through a fence and was blocking traffic on westbound Tully Road between Capitol Expressway and Eastridge Way.

No injuries were reported in the incident, fire officials said.

A flight instructor and his student escaped injury Wednesday when their small private plane crashed through a fence at a San Jose airport and ended up on a busy road, fire officials said.

The Cessna aircraft ran off the end of a runway at Reid-Hillview Airport at 10:38 a.m., crashed through a fence and went onto Tully Road, said Capt. Christopher Salcido of the San Jose Fire Department.

Two men, a flight instructor and student pilot, were on board. It was not immediately known who was piloting the plane, Salcido said.

Fire personnel arrived at 10:42 a.m., finding the occupants unharmed and already out of the blue and white aircraft.

“Not a scratch on them,” Salcido said. “In light of the accident itself, the silver lining is obviously the passenger and pilot weren’t injured.”

SAN JOSE -- A student pilot flying with an instructor overshot the runway at Reid-Hillview Airport during an exercise Wednesday morning, crashed into a fence and came to a stop on Tully Road, according to the San Jose Fire Department.

The student pilot and instructor walked away without any injuries. The plane also pushed a large portion of the fence onto the slow lane of Tully Road, resulting in a temporary road closure, according to San Jose Fire Capt. Chris Salcido.

At that time of morning at this location the winds start to shift to the NW from the SE. Is it possible there was a small tailwind component? Basic rule = If you don't have 75% of your lift off airspeed at 50% of the runway lenght, abort! Power to idle and apply the brakes and stop. But I wasn't there, so I don't know what happened. Glad that there were no injuries. That will be a very expensive fence though.
