(KUTV) A 41-year-old man crashed his plane at the Tooele airport on Tuesday afternoon, but was able to walk away from the crash without any serious injuries.

The student pilot, who was the only person on board, was trying to land his Cessna 172 at the Tooele Valley Airport in Erda around 4 p.m. when the crash happened, according to Tooele County Sheriff's Office.

He was heading north on the runway and the airplane's engine stalled and veered off the the runway path to the west. 

The wing of the airplane clipped the ground and caused the plane’s nose to crash into the ground, a spokesman for the sheriff's office said.

The National Transportation Safety Board is on the scene investigating if the crash was due to pilot error or if it was caused by a mechanical problem.
