CRYSTAL, Minn. (WCCO) -– A plane crashed Saturday evening at the Crystal Airport leaving the plane’s pilot and a passenger injured.

The crashed happened around 6:40 p.m. on the Crystal Airport runway, and it involved what a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) form describes as an experimental fixed wing single-engine plane.

That form also shows that the plane was built by its registered owner.

People living near the west side of the airport noticed the plane having problems in flight and called for help, police said.

“We were called by several people, neighbors to our dispatch, saying a plane looked like it was going to crash,” said Crystal Police Deputy Chief Stephanie Fealy.

Fealy said that one of the plane’s passengers appeared to get out of the plane when emergency crews appeared.

Both of the two injured were taken to the hospital. Their conditions have not yet been made available.

The FAA is investigating crash.
