CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - A single-engine plane has crash landed in Alcorn County.

Ricky Gibens, the regional emergency services director for the county and city of Corinth, says the plane left Roscoe Turner Airport between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. Thursday. He says the pilot apparently noticed the flap on one of the wings was stuck and tried to return to the airport.

Gibens says the plane ended up landing in the yard of an abandoned home southeast of the airport.

Four people were onboard.

Gibens says the pilot, Dr. David Chase, of Booneville. Chase, along with his wife, daughter and daughter-in-law, were aboard the plane. He says Chase suffered cuts and scrapes, while his wife had a mild concussion. The other two women were transported to a hospital in Memphis with serious injuries.
