    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A video taken from the control tower shows a van crossing a runway at the Springfield-Branson National Airport just seconds ahead of an airliner that was taking off.
    No one was injured in the June 27 incident. The jetliner, an Embraer 145 operated by American Airlines affiliate Envoy Air, was carrying 50 passengers and three crew.
    A report filed by Jim Brown, driver of the van, indicates he and two other people were taking the van to an airport employee barbecue. The Springfield News-Leader obtained the report through a Sunshine Law request.
    "I decided that due to the time limitations we would cross the runway in order to make it in time," Brown wrote in his report.
    "Just as I had cleared runway 20 the Ground Controller cleared me to cross runway 14, I repeated back cleared to cross runway 14 and proceeded at a high rate of speed (to minimize time on the taxiway and runway) down taxiway Uniform."
