A Cessna 172 aircraft carrying three people chose to land in Jean after someone suffered a medical emergency on board. Upon landing, the airplane went off of the runway, suffering serious damage, Crews said.

There were no injuries in result of the landing. One person was taken to a local hospital due to the medical emergency.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation and Safety Board will investigate the accident, FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer said.

The aircraft cannot be flown and will have to be moved by a crane, forcing closure of two runways at the airport, Crews said.

The Jean Sport Aviation Center is not a highly trafficked airport and there won't be a huge impact, she said.
