Police say they were called to the scene of a plane crash after a twin-engine jet slid off the runway in Michigan City.

Officials say it happened at the Michigan City Municipal Airport around 6:45 a.m. Wednesday.

Only the pilot and co-pilot were on-board. Injuries are minor, say police.

The twin-engine jet overshot the runway, went through a fence, crossed a highway and took out a guardrail before skidding about 300 yards into a field.

The plane sustained heavy damage.
