Pilot injured after plane crashes near Minnesota-Wisconsin border

LAKE ELMO, Minn. (AP) - A pilot is injured after a small plane crash at Lake Elmo airport near the Minnesota-Wisconsin border.

According to a Washington County sheriff's department news release, the single-engine plane lost power during take off and crashed on some grass near the runway at about 11:45 a.m. today.

The department says the aircraft had moderate damage but remained upright.

The pilot was the only one aboard and that person was taken to a local hospital for what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.

The Federal Aviation Administration responded. A message left with the FAA this afternoon was not immediately returned.
