No injuries were reported Saturday morning when a Great Lakes 2T-1A aircraft landing at Cambridge Municipal Airport traveled off the side of the runway after touching down and came to rest in a ditch.

The airplane was piloted by Troy Slack, 50, of New Concord, with one passenger, Lance Gross, 50, of Mesa, Colorado.

The State Highway Patrol reported the biplane was traveling at an unsafe speed when Slack attempted to taxi off the roadway causing him to lose control. A patrol trooper said Slack advised investigators he was traveling to fast for the right turn off the runway.

The plane reportedly spun around and traveled off the left side of the runway twice before coming to rest in the ditch with a creek. It sustained minor damage in the accident at approximately 9:50 a.m.

First responders from the Byesville Fire Department were dispatched to the scene along with highway patrol troopers. The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board were also notified along with Cambridge Airport Operations Manager Terry Losego.

The runway was closed while troopers investigated the accident and the plane, owned by Slack, was removed from the ditch.
