WOODS CROSS, Utah (ABC 4 News) A small airplane crashed into a field just after taking off from Skypark Airport in Woods Cross.

Emergency workers responded to a call at about 1:45 p.m. of a plane crash in the field just north of the airport. First responders found the plane on its belly. The plane's only occupant was the pilot, who walked away with minor injuries.

Reports say that during takeoff the plane had power issues. The pilot attempted to turn around and make an emergency landing, however he did not have enough altitude and instead put the plane down in the field. No structures were hit and the only damage was made to the plane.
