Narrative:
The Cessna 525B CitationJet CJ3+, N518AR, suffered a runway excursion after landing on runway 05 at Smithfield-North Central State Airport, Rhode Island. No injuries were reported.
The flight crew reported that the weather was below approach minimums, but they elected to continue the approach and descended below the clouds about 800 to 850 feet mean sea level. They stated the airplane was at an airspeed about 130 to 135 knots on the final approach leg to runway 05.
The aircraft touched down about midfield on runway 05, a 5000 feet (1524 m) asphalt runway, but failed to stop on the runway. It continued 80 meters past the paved surface, contacted part of the ILS aerials and came to rest on down sloping terrain. This slope is a 17 m high dropoff covered with bushes.
