ROANOKE, Va. - A twin-engine plane crash landed at Roanoke Regional Airport after its landing gear malfunctioned.

Airport spokeswoman Sherry Wallace says none of the four people aboard the private King Air was injured.

Wallace tells media outlets that the landing gear collapsed as the plane touched down Tuesday morning.

The accident shut down the airport's two runways for several hours while the airplane was removed. Both runways reopened Tuesday afternoon.
