Two people are recovering after their small plane crashed in Ida Township Sunday evening.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Department said the plane was about to land at a private airport on Saum Road around 8:30 p.m., when its landing gear caught a power line, causing the plane to nose dive into a corn field.
The pilot, 84-year-old Wilbert Matthes from Ida Township, and his grandson, 20-year-old Ian Zawacki from Monroe, suffered minor injuries.
They were both taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The aircraft was an experimental plane called a KitFox Series 7, which is similar in size to a Cessna 150, according to the Sheriff's Department.
There are some power outages in the area as a result of the crash.
