OCRACOKE, North Carolina (WITN) - Two people received minor injuries after their plane crashed on Ocracoke Island.

The Cape Hatteras National Seashore says it happened around noon on Monday at the Ocracoke Island Airport. They say the fixed-wing, single-engine airplane crashed-landed some 30 yards from the runway.

The pilot, Allen Sawyer, and a passenger walked away from the crash with minor injuries. The plane, which took off this morning from the Johnston Regional Airport in Smithfield, crashed into a stand of trees next to the runway, the park service told WITN.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the Vans RV7 aircraft ran off the runway and into the grass while landing. They will investigate the crash while the National Transportation Safety Board will determine the probable cause in the crash.

Sawyer owns the experimental plane and is from Garner, according to the Federal Aviation Administration website.
