ORRVILLE, Ohio -- Authorities are investigating after a small plane crashed near state Route 57 and Five Points Road Friday morning.

Two passengers inside the private plane suffered minor injuries. The passengers are local residents, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The plane crashed shortly after takeoff from a privately owned air field. Authorities believe the pilot was attempting to return the plane to ground to avoid striking powerlines when the plane ran out of runway space.
