A small private plane slid off the runway at Charlottesville Albemarle Airport Wednesday night.

The Learjet plane landed on the runway, but ended up crossing into a taxiway and onto the grass.

All three people who were on board are fine and the runway is operational again. Commercial flights will not be affected.

As of Wednesday night, rescue crews were still on the scene. The plane will remain in place as state police continue their investigation.
