MASON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say a small plane has crashed in southwestern Michigan's Cass County after its engine failed.

The pilot and a passenger had minor injuries from the Sunday afternoon crash.

The sheriff's department says the single-engine plane piloted by 45-year-old Scott Duck, of Edwardsburg, crashed into a field in Mason Township shortly after taking off from a nearby grass air strip.

The department says Duck had attempted to turn the plane around for an emergency landing when it lost altitude.

The passenger was identified as 83-year-old Floyd Johnson of Niles.
