Couple escapes serious injury in Idaho plane crash

ST MARIES, Idaho (AP) The engine on a small airplane failed as it was flying over northern Idaho and the plane crashed as the pilot tried to land in a pasture near St. Maries.


The pilot and his female passenger escaped serious injury.


KREM-TV reports the Cessna C180 was flying from Lewiston to Coeur d'Alene when its engine failed Saturday.


The pilot was trying to land in a field when the plane's left wing struck a tree. Property owner Kurt Reed says the plane cartwheeled twice, the propeller hit the ground and the plane landed on its top.


The woman was flown to the hospital as a precaution.


The names of the pilot and his passenger have not been released.
