MARINETTE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A 66-year-old man from Lena is injured after crashing his small plane in Marinette County Tuesday.

The Marinette County Sheriff's Department reports that the call came in at 11:18 a.m. from a farm field on the north side of County Road W off Pheasant Drive in the Town of Stephenson.

The pilot, who was the only one on board, complained of back pain but was conscious and alert. He was taken to a Marinette hospital for treatment.

Sheriff's officials believe the plane was en route to the Iron Mountain, Michigan area, when the plane had some engine trouble. The origin of the flight is not known.
