GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - The Delaware State Police says a small plane attempting to land at the Sussex County Airport has instead landed on a Georgetown roadway.

Troopers say it happened around 10 a.m. Sunday. Troopers say the pilot was the sole occupant of the plane and was not injured.

Several utility poles were damaged during the pilot's landing on Park Avenue, which is east of the airport.

Delaware State Police Cpl. John Day says it was not clear why the pilot landed on the roadway instead of at the airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration will be investigating.
