The 37-year-old pilot of a small plane and his 39-year-old passenger received minor injuries after their twin engine Cessna crashed into a cornfield about 85 miles west-northwest of Detroit.

The Clinton County Sheriff’s office says Friday in a release that the plane was attempting to land on a private airstrip in Greenbush Township about 10:35 a.m. when the pilot reported engine trouble and a loss of power.

Pilot and passenger walked away from the crash, were treated at the scene for minor injuries and released.

The crash was under investigation by the sheriff’s office and Federal Aviation Administration.

    Brilliant article. Describe the crash of a twin-engine airplane and show a picture of a single engine, turbine, Cessna CARAVAN. Great to see reporters have no clue about fact checking.
