Investigators were attempting to find out how and why a small plane landed on an old stretch of roadway in an industrial part of Melbourne late Thursday.

No one was injured after the unidentified single-engine aircraft touched down about 9:02 p.m. on Old Nasa Boulevard, just south of Nasa Boulevard, not far from the Orlando Melbourne International Airport. 

"We don't know the cause, but the airplane came in for a landing and touched down on Old Nasa. It came to a stop at the dead-end of the road. It stopped in the grass," said Sgt. Mike Casey of the Melbourne Police Department. "Everyone is fine, the only person on board was the pilot," he said. 

The pilot has not been identified.

The incident was being investigated by airport police. 

Neither airport police nor the airport's public information officer responded to inquiries Friday.
