Two people were injured in the crash of a small plane Wednesday night near the Mineral Wells Municipal Airport, authorities said.
The twin-engine Piper Comanche was approaching the airport to land about 7:20 p.m., Lynn Lunsford, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said.
DPS Sgt. Richard Hunter said in a news release that the plane lost power and went down in a field about a quarter-mile northwest of the airport.
There were three people on the plane. One was not injured, but two were flown to a Fort Worth hospital. Their conditions were not available Wednesday night.
The pilot had reported some engine trouble, Lunsford said. The FAA is investigating.
The plane is registered to a Temple resident.
