No one was injured after a small home-built plane carrying one person left a runway at Hudson Valley Regional Airport in Wappingers Falls Friday, according to state police spokesperson Melissa McMorris.

The accident was reported at around 12:17 p.m. The plane, an RV4, had been “taxiing" when it left the runway, though McMorris said she didn’t know whether the incident occurred after a landing or before a planned takeoff.

Only a pilot was inside the plane, she said, and the accident appears to be accidental at this time.

The Federal Aviation Administration will conduct an investigation.
