UPDATE: Two brothers hurt in small plane crash

by

TOWN OF OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - A small plane crash in a field in the Town of Oshkosh has left two brothers from Kentucky with non-life threatening injuries.

First responders were called to a small grass runway near the Hickory Oaks campground just after 3 p.m. Wednesday. Upon arrival, they found the brothers had crashed their home-built RV9A plane.

Oshkosh Fire Department officials say the pilot was attempting to land near the campground when he lost power at the entrance to the runway and just crashed. Both men were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

EAA officials say the plane wasn't part of Wednesday's AirVenture show. It's not clear if the brothers were attending the event.

The field where the crash happened is near the state prison.
