The Federal Aviation Administration said a Cessna C140 veered off of Runway 8 while landing.

Dave Kinney, supervisor of Burlington County's 911 communications center, said the call came in as a small plane that had rolled while trying to land on the runway.

Kinney said the pilot suffered head injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening and was transported to Virtua Memorial Hospital in Mount Holly. 

Kinney said he did not have the man's name and no update was available on his condition. Kinney said the pilot was the only one onboard the craft.

The Lumberton Fire Department responded and was still on scene at 5:15 p.m., he said, securing the fuel in the plane. He said the Federal Aviation Administration was notified but he did not know if they would respond to lead the investigation.
