OXFORD, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say two people were treated at a hospital after the plane they were in crashed as it tried to take off from a private airport in eastern Iowa.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says the accident occurred around 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Green Castle Airport near Oxford. The office says the single-engine plane overturned when it ran off the runway. The pilot and another person were able to get out of the wreckage and were taken to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro said Monday that he didn’t have any information about the two people or about what caused the accident.
