On January 28, 2004, about 0915 eastern standard time, a Cessna 172M, N70256, piloted by a commercial pilot, sustained substantial damage during landing on runway 32 (3,899 feet by 75 feet, asphalt), at the Clark County Airport, Jeffersonville, Indiana. The airplane struck a snowbank on the unplowed runway. The 14 CFR Part 91 personal flight was operating in visual meteorological conditions without a flight plan. The flight originated from Bowman Field, Louisville, Kentucky, about 0845.

The pilot reported that he "landed on closed runway 14-32." The runway had been closed and the Federal Aviation Administration had issued a Notice to Airmen to that effect. JVY also has a second runway, 18-36, that intersects runway 14-32. Runway 18-36 had been plowed leaving ridges of snow and ice at the edge of runway 18-36 and crossing runway 14-32. During the landing, the nose landing gear collapsed when it impacted the snow/ice ridge adjacent to runway 18-36. The pilot reported no mechanical malfunctions of the airplane.
