ANGIER, North Carolina — Federal aviation officials are investigating after an incident involving a small plane at the Kennebec Airfield near Angier.

WTVD of Durham reported Friday (http://abc11.tv/1FSVl8s) that a pilot in his early 20s was flying from Sanford to Kennebec around 8:45 p.m. when he misjudged the runway, hit a ditch and skidded off the runway.

The pilot was the only one onboard the small four-seat plane, which was damaged. The pilot was uninjured.

Fire crew responded to a small fuel leak.

Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration were expected to be on scene Saturday.
