A single engine plane overshot a runway while landing at Montauk Airport and crashed through a fence before coming to a stop on a street. No injuries were reported in the mishap on Runway 24 just before 6 p.m. Saturday.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Holly Baker said only the pilot was aboard the Cessna and that the fence was the only property damaged.

She says the accident was apparently caused by bad weather.
