HOLLISTER, Calif. (AP) — A pilot has been injured after a single-engine plane lost engine power and made a hard landing in central California.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the Beechcraft A45 was substantially damaged after landing in a field at the west end of Hollister Municipal Airport Saturday.
The pilot was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The plane was registered to John Cahners of Palo Alto.
A call to his office was not immediately returned.
The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the accident.
