JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Two people have been injured after a single-engine plane crashed in a partially wooded area in central Missouri.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune (https://bit.ly/28JOcya ) reports that the crash happened Sunday afternoon at a Cole County farm. Cole County Fire Protection District assistant chief Mike Rackers says the pilot and co-pilot had managed to get out of the mangled plane by the time emergency responders arrived. They were flown to a Columbia hospital for treatment.

Cole County Emergency Medical Services spokesman Kevin Wieberg says one of the men had injuries to his chest and face. The other man had been impaled, possibly by a stick.

The property owner called authorities after seeing a low-flying aircraft and hearing a lead crash. The cause of the crash wasn’t immediately known.
