Officials from the Baton Rouge Metro Airport say the runway is cleared after a single engine plane ran off the end of a runway Wednesday afternoon.

Jim Caldwell says the pilot had engine issues and had to abort the flight. There was damage to the plane, but no injuries. Only the pilot was onboard and he was able to get out of the plane safely. 

The runway had to be closed until the plane was removed.
