LEROY, New York (WHEC) - A small plane crashed at the Le Roy Airport in Genesee County on Sunday afternoon.

According to the Genesee County Sheriff's Office, their dispatch center was notified of the crash around 3 p.m.

The sheriff's office says the plane failed to take off and hit an embankment before coming to rest in an open area. The underbody and engine compartment of the plane sustained significant damage.

The plane had four people onboard at the time of the crash. Pilot John Yates, along with his wife and two kids, were able to remove themselves from the plane. All four were taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.

The cause of the crash is still still being investigated by the Genesee County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Aviation Administration.

The LeRoy Airport runway was shut down temporarily Sunday afternoon as emergency crews responded to a small plane crash.

The Genesee County Sheriff's Office said a family of four suffered minor injuries in the incident.

Airport owner Raymond Detor said it happened around 3:15 p.m.

A single-engine plane was taking off from the airport when it crashed during takeoff. The aircraft stayed on airport property and landed within a few yards from a mobile home park on the western side of the runway. 

The pilot John Yates, 48, of Canandaigua, and three other passengers made it out of the plane on their own. 

"I was sitting in my living room watching the Buffalo Bills game and I heard a bang," said Donald Showler, of LeRoy. "I thought maybe it was my porch and I saw an airplane out here in the airport, [with] the motor about 40 feet in front of it, and people starting to get out of the plane."

The cause of the crash is still unknown, but the Federal Aviation Administration is said to begin an investigation sometime this week.

The airport owner said the last time a plane crashed in the area was about 10 years ago. The airport has since reopened while the investigation continues.
