DOVESVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a man suffered minor injuries after a plane he was piloting crashed into a wooded area in South Carolina.

The State of Columbia reports the privately-owned plane crashed in Dovesville on Sunday around 2 p.m.

Darlington County Sheriff’s Office public information liaison Lt. Robert Kilgo says the pilot was the only person on board the plane and that a nearby homeowner helped the pilot escape.
