RAYTHEON BEECH KING AIR 90, ROSEAU, MINN., JUNE 27, 2002–Runway incursions took on a new meaning when the two pilots and two medical personnel on board King Air N911ND escaped injury during a 4:36 a.m. accident at Roseau Municipal Airport (ROX). Operated by Weather Modification Inc., the twin turboprop sustained substantial damage when the left main gear collapsed and the airplane veered about 150 ft off the left side of the runway after the King Air hit a deer on Runway 34 during landing.

The aircraft departed Hector International Airport (FAR) in Fargo, N.D., earlier that morning to pick up a patient at ROX for medical transport. It was on an IFR flight plan, and VMC was reported at the airport at the time of the accident.
