FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) - Two men were injured when a small plane crashed at Fond du Lac County Airport.

The crash happened Thursday morning. The Fond du Lac Action Reporter says white smoke burst from the engine as an ambulance arrived.

Fond du Lac Sheriff’s Office captain of operations Rick Olig says the victims were men. He described their injuries as critical. Both were flown to the hospital.

Fond du Lac fire Chief Peter O’Leary says the single engine aircraft crashed on the northwest corner of the airport property, several hundred yards west of a runway.

Olig says witnesses told authorities the plane was flying low and appeared as if it was going to land when it abruptly banked and crashed.



The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash’s cause.
