A single-engine plane carrying two passengers overshot the runway during an attempt to land at Block Island Airport and crashed in the field across Center Road. A New Shoreham police officer at the scene said the two passengers were not seriously injured. The plane was in several pieces, and the fence surrounding the airport was damaged, as was the guardrail on the other side of the street, which looked like it had been clipped. The accident happened just before 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 1 — Lars Trodson
