MARYSVILLE, Ohio — Investigators are trying to figure out what happened after a single engine plane crashed and flipped upside down at the Union County Airport Thursday afternoon.

Witnesses say it happened right near the runway.

Deputies say the 21-year-old pilot from Cambridge denied medical treatment. He was seen walking around at the scene and appeared to be fine witnesses said.

The crash happened just before 4:00 PM. 

Deputies say when he was landing, it appears the plane was caught by a cross breeze, causing it to flip. 

The Federal Aviation Administration will be at the scene Friday to inspect the plane.
