BLACKFOOT– A pilot and passenger were transported to a local hospital after a plane crash at the Blackfoot Airport on Tuesday.

Captain Gordon Croft with the Blackfoot Police Department told the call for the plane crash came in around 3:10 p.m. on the north side of the Blackfoot airport near the Blackfoot Golf Course.

A 70-year-old male pilot and 38-year-old male passenger were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

At the scene, the Cessna 175 aircraft was upside down. A tow truck came to take the aircraft off the grass.

Croft said the nearby runway was closed for a while as officers investigated the scene. Croft told that the Federal Aviation Administration is conducting the investigation.

There’s no word yet as to why or how the plane crashed.
