CANAAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — No injuries were reported after a pilot made an emergency landing in a field along Friendsville Road on Wednesday.

According to the Canaan Township Fire Department, the pilot took off from Weltzien Skypark, a privately owned airport in Wadsworth, and made an emergency landing after experiencing mechanical issues.

The plane landed in a field on Friendsville Road just north of Steiner Road near Canaan Lutheran Church, said fire Chief Brandon Smith. Two people occupied the single-engine plane, a flight instructor and a student pilot, he said.

The plane landed in a farm field off of Friendsville Road between Steiner Road and Easton Road (State Route 604).
