JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. -- Two people were injured when a pilot had to make a hard landing in a field in Johnson County Wednesday afternoon.
Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox says the small aircraft went down near County Road 525 East and State Road 44 on the east side of the county.
Cox said two people were on the plane when it suffered a fuel problem that prompted the pilot to make an emergency landing in a farm field without landing gear. The pilot told police the engine wasn't getting fuel, but the plane had two 30-gallon reserves.
