SONOMA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two people were injured when a small experimental plane hit power lines and crashed into a vineyard in Northern California wine country.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the Kitfox IV crashed in Sonoma about four miles west of Napa County airport and about 50 miles north of San Francisco.

Gregor says the two people on board survived the crash and were taken to a hospital but had no further information on their identities or conditions. There are no reports of any injuries on the ground.

The FAA is investigating the crash.

Kitfox aircraft are a series of small, amateur-built planes with folding wings for easy transportation and storage.
