A single-engine plane accident at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport sent a pilot to the hospital Friday morning.

The man was working on a private plane with the engine still running around 11 a.m. when the aircraft began to move, said Chris Elms, a Cal Fire spokesman. The plane rolled across taxiways and a grassy area before coming to a stop between runways.

The pilot suffered minor injuries during the incident and was taken to the hospital, Elms said.

Cal Fire is turning the incident scene over to airport staff to be investigated, he said.

A pilot was taken to the hospital Friday morning after his plane veered off the taxiway at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport, according to CAL FIRE.

Fire officials say the pilot was out of the single-engine plane believed to be privately owned when, for unknown reasons, the plane started to roll forward on the taxiway.

The pilot was unable to get the plane to stop. It crossed over a grassy and onto another runway before coming to rest in another grassy area between the runways, officials say. 

CAL FIRE says its crews were requested in case the plane caught fire.

Injuries to the pilot were described as minor. No one else was involved. 

Crews were working to remove the plane from the area shortly before noon, but it did not appear the runways were affected, as planes could still be seen taking off and landing at the airport. 

Airport staff are reportedly working with the NTSB on the investigation into the incident.
