MANKATO — A single-engine airplane crashed into a utility vehicle at the Mankato Regional Airport shortly before 10 a.m. Wednesday, said Mankato Public Works Director Jeff Johnson.

Johnson said no one was injured in the crash, and the Federal Aviation Administration came to the airport to investigate the crash Wednesday afternoon. There was one person in the plane and one person in the utility vehicle, he said. 

"I believe the plane was landing, but I cannot confirm that," Johnson said. "The plane was on the taxiway, but whether it was landing and crossed over the grass and into the taxiway or what exactly happened I can't say. I haven't' seen any report from the FAA yet."
