A small plane crashed Friday morning at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, but no one on board was seriously hurt.

Just after 10 a.m., the Citation jet was coming in for a landing on the east side of the airport when it experienced a problem. The jet crashed just short of the runway, and slid into the grass.

There was a small fire on board the plane just after the crash. Crews at the airport quickly put out the flames. There were two people on board. One was transported to a hospital in good condition. The other person refused treatment.

It's not known yet what caused the problem that led to the crash.

Officials say the plane has been removed from the airfield, and the east runway reopened at about 3:30 p.m. There was no impact to commercial airline operations during this time.
