A small plane attempting to land at a Hudson Valley airport overshot the runway and crashed into a residential area, injuring all four people aboard the plane, two seriously. A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman says the single-engine Cessna 172 crashed Thursday night at Kobelt Airport in Hudson Valley, about 80 miles northwest of New York City.

Spokesman Jim Peters says the plane attempted to land at about 9:20 p.m. but went long. He says no one on the ground was injured.

Peters did not immediately know what damages the four-seater had incurred.

The airport is also known as the Wallkill AirPark and is run by a private company.
