MADRAS, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say several people walked away from a plane crash with minor injuries north of Bend in Madras.

The sheriff’s office says the pilot was forced to land in a cow pasture near the Madras Airport.

The sheriff’s office says the three people on board, including an instructor and a passenger, were not badly hurt. The pilot and passenger were taken to a hospital for an evaluation.
