    2 Maine Men Crash-Land in Plane in Ohio Field
    Ashland County Sheriff's Office

    Authorities say a small plane crash-landed in a northern Ohio field, leaving the two men on board with minor injuries. 

    Investigators say a father and son from Maine experienced engine trouble while flying Sunday evening and tried to land in a field near Loudonville, roughly 60 miles (97 kilometers) northeast of Columbus. The two-seat aircraft skidded and flipped upside down in another field. 

    The men were able to climb out of the aircraft and were taken to a hospital with minor injuries. The Ashland County Sheriff's Office said it wasn't immediately sharing details about the pair. 

    The Ashland Times-Gazette reports that the Federal Aviation Administration was expected to continue an investigation into the crash on Monday.
