Engine trouble caused small plane crash near Spearfish

No one was hurt in a small plane crash near the Spearfish airport Saturday.

Lawrence County Sheriff's deputies were called to a field outside of Lantis Enterprises at 11:55 a.m. to find the 1946 Cessna on its top.

Chief Deputy Joe Harmon says the pilot, Bruce Bowen of Sturgis, developed engine trouble and was forced to land in this field across from the airport. While Bowen was able to land okay, the plane tripped a barbed wire fence, causing it to flip.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
