OSCODA COUNTY, Michigan, (WPBN/WGTU) -- A northern Michigan man is doing fine after a plane crash in Oscoda County.

According to investigators, the crash happened in a wooded area northwest of the Dennis Kaufman Memorial Airport Monday afternoon.

A police report said the 68-year-old Lewiston man flew into the airport and filled his plane with gas before the crash.

At this time, it is believed he may have suffered an engine malfunction.

The Lewiston man was the only person inside the plane at the time of the crash.

He suffered small abrasions but investigators said those could be from the victim climbing out of the woods and not the crash itself.

Right now, crews are working on getting the plane out of the trees.
