Two Injured in Western Iowa Plane Crash
GRISWOLD, Iowa (AP) — Officials are investigating the cause of a single-engine plane crash in western Iowa that injured two men.
Atlantic radio station KJAN says the crash happened Friday night six miles northwest of Griswold.
Pottawatomie County Sheriff Jeff Danker says the plane was taking off from a private grass runway around 8:30 p.m. when it crashed into a soybean field and flipped onto its top.
The 75-year-old pilot and a 59-year-old passenger, both from Atlantic, were injured and taken to a local hospital. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Authorities did not release their names.
Danker says the National Transportation Safety Bureau and the Federal Aviation Administration will be on the scene Monday to investigate.
