A pilot reportedly had non-life threatening injuries following a small plane crash in Clarksville.

Officials said a Cessna 182 crashed on landing at the Clarksville Regional Airport. The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

Authorities confirmed the plane touched down before going through the perimeter fence and coming to rest on the shoulder of Outlaw Field Road.

One lane of traffic in that area was blocked.

The pilot, whose injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, was the only occupant in the plane, according to initial reports.

An incoming weather front at the time may have been a factor in the crash. Further information was not yet available as the investigation continued.
