The 1972 Cessna 182P (N25HD) overshot the runway while landing at around 11:45am, crashing into a store’s parking lot on an adjacent street, coming to a stop about 600 feet from the store’s front door, according to a Newark Star-Ledger report.

Only the pilot was on board, who was said to be “in a lot of pain” according to a witness.

The privately-owned airport—which has a single, 2942 ft. long runway—received a $100,000 federal grant last year to address runway safety issues.

Two other planes have crashed while landing at the airport since 2005.
