CLEVELAND - Few details are available about the crash of a small airplane at the White County Airport south of Cleveland Saturday.

The plane went off the runway, into a pond and hit a small boat, according to White County Sheriff's Office Capt. Tim Chapman. He said no one was hurt.

Chapman said he didn't know the make of aircraft, but the pilot had flown in from Jackson County.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
