LAGRANGEVILLE, New York – Three passengers escaped injury when a small plane they were in skidded off of the runway Saturday morning.

First responders were dispatched to Sky Acres Airport at 9:06 am for a report of a plane off the runway.  Firefighters from Union Vale and LaGrange responded to the scene.  The passengers, a family of three from Long Island, were evaluated and all refused medical attention.

Sources say that the pilot was attempting to land the plane and used the wrong runway approach.  The plane was subjected to strong crosswinds and skidded off of the runway.

This is the second plane crash in the vicinity of the airport in recent weeks.
