MCMINNVILLE, OR (KPTV) -

Three people survived a plane crash at McMinnville airport Monday.

The Lear jet and its three-person crew ran off the end of the runway but didn't catch fire. The crew is credited with quick thinking, cutting fuel and power to the aircraft before it crashed.

The crash was initially reported as a plane that ran into a building, but that report turned out to be false.

The crew was checked at the scene by an ambulance, but no injuries have been reported.
