1 injured when plane crash-lands near Gardner

June 6, 2012


— Authorities in northeastern Kansas say one person suffered minor injuries in the crash-landing of a small plane near Gardner Municipal Airport.

The Johnson County Sheriff's office received a call around 1 p.m. Wednesday that an airplane had gone down. Deputies found the single-engine Beechcraft in a field about 200 yards south of the airport's runway.

Two people were on board the airplane, but neither was hurt badly enough to be taken to a hospital.

The Federal Aviation Administration is looking into the cause of the crash.
