This is all I could find. Apparently, a road was not involved. No FAA prelim was listed at the time of this post.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Authorities say a two-seater airplane has gone off the side of a runway during a landing at an Oklahoma City airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the antique Ryan was trying to land at Wiley Post Airport about 4:15 p.m. Thursday when a landing gear collapsed.

FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford says two people were on board the single-engine plane but neither was hurt.

Agency records show the plane, built in 1940, is registered to Hisey Aviation LLC in Oklahoma City.

Lunsford says the FAA is investigating the incident.
