With comedy stars like Brooke Shields and Jim Belushi aboard, even a plane landing can be funny.

A small Cessna carrying Shields and Belushi ran into a parked SUV on Friday afternoon after it landed and the pilot had left the aircraft without securing the brakes, San Luis Obispo, Calif., sheriff’s officials tell PEOPLE.


The Cessna 421B had touched down at a private airstrip at Hearst Castle in San Simeon, Calif., where the two celebs and others on the plane were attending a private function, says sheriff’s spokesman Rob Bryn.

“The pilot got out, but he forgot to set the parking brake,” Bryn says.

The plane rolled a few feet into a parked rental SUV, breaking its sideview mirror and scraping the side of the vehicle, but no injuries were reported, says Bryn.

"It was an unfortunate accident but thankfully everyone is fine," Shields's rep, Jill Fritzo, tells PEOPLE.
