PEORIA, AZ (AZFamily) — A small plane missed the runway before crashing through an abandoned travel trailer in north Peoria late Tuesday morning, federal officials say.

First responders were dispatched to the area of State Route 74 and New River Road shortly before 12 p.m. That’s about five miles south of Lake Pleasant.

A Peoria Fire-Medical official says the single-engine plane collided with a travel trailer before coming to a stop on its nose. No injuries were reported on the plane or the ground.
According to preliminary information released by the FAA, the pilot overshot the runway while trying to land at Pleasant Valley Airport. After hitting the trailer, the plane’s nose gear collapsed.

Two people were onboard the aircraft, a Nanchang CJ-6A built in China in 1967 that’s registered to an LLC in Scottsdale.
