LOUISVILLE, Neb. (AP) - The pilot of a single-passenger airplane that crashed in eastern Nebraska has been taken to a hospital for his injuries.

Officials with the Cass County Sheriff’s Department say authorities received a report of an airplane with engine trouble Sunday night. The plane later crashed in a field south of Louisville.

The pilot, 44-year-old Eric Stadjuhar, was flying the plane out of the Millard Airport in Omaha. He was trapped inside the airplane after the crash and had to be cut free.

A helicopter transported Stadjuhar to the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

Hospital officials said Stadjuhar was in fair condition Monday.

The crash is under investigation.
