VENTURA, California   (CBSLA) – A Boeing Stearman A75N1 crashed Saturday evening, around 7:25 p.m., near the 101 and 33 Freeways. Investigators say the plane flipped over after landing in a field with two people aboard. Neither were injured in the crash.

Apparently, the pilot reported engine trouble before making an emergency landing near 800 West Main Street in Ventura, according to Ian Gregor, a public affairs specialist with the Federal Aviation Administration.

The aircraft tail number is N87WF. The FAA will investigate.

VENTURA, California - Ventura Fire Chief David Endaya said no one was injured when a Boeing Stearman A75N1 overturned by Ventura Beach RV Resort on the 800 block of W. Main Street.

It happened around 7:20 p.m. Saturday.

Endaya said two people onboard walked away uninjured.

It is not clear where the plane took off or where it was headed.

First responders remain in the area to make sure fuel leaking from the plane is cleaned up without sparking a fire.
